Our Beautiful World

Tits - Meiser


© www.ecosystema.ru/


The tits, chickadees, and titmice constitute Paridae, a large family of small passerine birds which occur in the northern hemisphere
and Africa. Most were formerly classified in the genus Parus.

These birds are called either "chickadees" (onomatopoeic, derived from their distinctive "chick-a dee dee dee" alarm call)
or "titmice" in North America, and just "tits" in the rest of the English-speaking world.

These birds are mainly small stocky woodland species with short stout bills. Some have crests. They range in length from 10 to 22
centimetres. They are adaptable birds, with a mixed diet including seeds and insects. Many species will live around human
habitation and come readily to bird feeders for nuts or seed, and learn to take other foods.
In Britain, Great Tits and Blue Tits famously learned to break open the foil caps sealing bottles of milk that had been
delivered to homes to get at the cream floating on top.

These are hole-nesting birds, typically using trees, although some species build nests on the ground.
They lay anything from three to nineteen speckled white eggs, depending on species.

Recently, the large Parus group has been gradually split into several genera (as indicated below), which has been pioneered
by North American ornithological authorities and to a more limited degree (as of now) elsewhere.
Penduline tits and stenostirid "warblers" might be included here

Aegithalidae, The long-tailed tits or bushtits, Aegithalidae, are a family of small passerine birds. The family contains 13
species in four genera. Aegithalos (9), Psaltriparus (1), Psaltria (1) and Leptopoecile (2)

The nuthatches, Sittidae is a family of small passerine birds which contains the single genus Sitta containing about 24 species
of nuthatches, which are found across Eurasia and North America.

Characterised by large heads, short tails, and powerful bills and feet, nuthatches advertise their territory using loud, simple songs. Most species exhibit grey or bluish upperparts and a black eye stripe.

The penduline tits are a family of small passerine birds, related to the true tits. All but the Verdin and Fire-capped Tit make elaborate bag nests hanging from trees (whence "penduline", hanging), usually over water; inclusion of the Fire-capped Tit in this family is disputed by some authorities.
Genus: Remiz, Anthoscopus, Cephalopyrus, Auriparus, Pholidornis
