The best part of bird photography is to meet new birds daily and learn more about their lives. Observing a small bird and then taking its pictures is a very adventurous job. Taking pictures of small birds like Tits is a difficult job because they don't stay in the same place for a long time.

Eye Contact, Black-throated Tit,

Black-throated Tit

Black-throated Tit is the fourth Tit bird, I am going to share with you. Earlier, I shared with you Cinereous Tit, Great Tit, and Himalayan black-lored tit. Tit birds are small passerine birds and they belong to the family of birds Aegithalidae. The scientific name of Black-throated Bushtit is Aegithalos concinnus. Due to the small size of Tit birds, we sometimes do not notice them, but by following their sweet voice, we can find them.

I met the Black-throated Tit near Baijnath town of Himachal Pradesh. We can find this tit in the foothills of the Himalayas from India, Nepal, Bhutan, Burma, Vietnam, China, and Taiwan.  Black-throated Tit lives in forests and thick bushes. Black-throated Tit is a highly social bird and it loves to move in groups; however, I met a single bird only.

It is a small bird of the size of 10 to 11 cm and it weighs between 4-8 gm. We can find the six sub-species of this Tit bird which vary in plumage, but the Black throat is common in all sub-species of Black-throated Tit. We can recognize these birds with chestnut-colored caps and Black patches on the throat and around the eyes. The back of the bird is dark grey and under part is whitish.

Black-throated Tit mainly eats small insects, seeds, fruits, and berries. It was an interesting experience for me to capture the pictures of Black-throated Tit and in future, I will update more info and pics of this bird.
