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.

Foarte frumoasa aceata pasare mica, culorile sunt nemaipomenite si frumos luminate, cat despre atitudinea micutului intradevar o privire foarte curioasa.
Felicitari inca o data

O seara frumoasa,

Salut Razvan
Cum sa nu indragesti aceasta creatura! E atat de simpatica, sa o vezi agitandu-se printre crengute, agitata, si mai ales cu culorile astea!
Nu prea are obiceiul sa stea locului, asa ca nu am reusit sa o fotografiez.
Pot sa spun ca tu ai reusit foarte bine, si mai ales, postura e oarecum comica. Frumos!
Numai bine

Intradevar, se citeste curiozitatea pe chipoul acestui mic si frumos pitigoi!
Splendida captura!

I now that we love the image to stay original as it is, but if I was you, I would clear those few liefs behind the bird. But this is just my view.Well done again! Greetings from SA !
