Birds / Coal Tit (Parus ater)

Coal Tit

Information:

The Coal Tit is distributed throughout most of Europe and into most of Asia. It is normally found in conifer woodland where spruce seeds are a favourite food but it is also found in mixed forest and woodland. It is slightly smaller than a Blue Tit P. caeruleus with a shorter tail. Its principal features are the black head with white cheeks and white nape patch and the two white wing-bars. British birds are olive-grey on the upperparts though this colour varies in other parts of its range. Apart from seeds it eats insects and spiders.
