From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Blue Tit, Cyanistes caeruleus, is a 10.5 to 12 cm (4.2 to 4.8 inches,) long passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common resident breeder throughout temperate and subarctic Europe and western Asia in deciduous or mixed woodlands. It is a resident bird, i.e., most birds do not migrate.
The azure blue crown and dark blue line passing through the eye and encircling the white cheeks to the chin give the Blue Tit a very distinctive appearance. The forehead and a bar on the wing are white. The nape, wings and tail are blue; the back is yellowish green; the under parts mostly sulphur-yellow with a dark line down the abdomen. The bill is black, the legs bluish grey, and the irides dark brown. Young Blue Tits are noticeably more yellow. This is a common and popular European garden bird, due to its perky acrobatic performances when feeding on nuts or suet. It swings beneath the holder, calling tee, tee, tee or a scolding churr.
The song period lasts almost all the year round, but is most often heard during February to June.

Good morning Razvan,
A beautiful capture of a Bluetit! The pose and colurs are excellent and the nice lateral POV shows it with excellent clarity against a diffuse BG in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Buna Razvan,
Frumos pitigoiul tau cu detalii foarte bune, culori placute si o compozitie foarte buna.
Numai bine,

Salut Razvan,
Compozitie foarte bune, detalii excelente, culori naturale, foarte bine redate!! I-mi place foarte mult fundalul sters cu acel grilaj abia vizibil, care insa da un aer misterios.. De duce cu gandul la libertatea pasarii ...:-))

Ciao Razvan. Spectacular bright coloured capture for the cute friend with top focused eye. Intrigant BG!
