Black-Throated Bushtit (Tit) Pictures and Detail-

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 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 Bishtit 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 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 cap and Black patch on throat and around 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.
