The Himalayan black-lored tit (Parus xanthogenys) Pictures and Detail 

Today, I met a third bird from Tit Family, a Himalayan Black-lored tit. Earlier, I covered Great Tit and Cinerous Tit in previous posts. I had a great experience with Great Tit and Cinerous Tit. This time, I got a chance to take more pictures of all these three species of Tits. 

I discovered Himalayan Black-lored tit when I was searching for a Redstart bird in a small rocky river. I noticed that a small yellow-black bird is trying to get my attention and when I focused my lens on this bird, then I realized that it is a tiny and very beautiful Himalayan Black-lored tit.

I never thought that I will find a Himalayan Black-lored tit so easily. This bird also looked very willing to get his picture clicked; however, due to sunset time, I was not able to get many good pictures. Though, I had a great experience with him and I can surely say now that some bird enjoys communicating with humans.

  The scientific name of this bird is Parus Xanthogenys and it makes very sweet sounds like other tit birds. Himalayan Black-lored Tit as the name suggest is a resident Himalayan bird and is related to Yellow Tit.

Like other Tit birds, it also eats insects, spiders, fruits and seeds. Himalayan Black-lored tit may use other birds hole for nesting or it may make its own.

Himalayan Black-lored tit was so happy at clicking his pictures that he started taking a bath in front of my camera and also showed me other poses.

In the two pictures, below you can see Himalayan Black-lore tit taking bath and in water.

The sad thing is that we still know very less about this bird. I have decided to capture more pictures of this beautiful bird so that we can learn more about it. I have come to know about the area where I can find him and he has also become my friend so I hope I will get more his picture soon.
