About the Crested Tit

Unlike other birds in the Tit family, the Crested Tit is not very colourful and is easily identifiable by the upstanding white and black crest and its interesting pattern on the face.

Crested Tits are mainly found feeding hanging from branches and clinging to trunks. They also share the food storing habit that other tits partake in. In early winter, they store a lot of food away to use in late winter.
