Long-tailed Tit, Aegithalos caudatus

TR.Name : Uzunkuyruklu Baştankara

Binomial name:
Aegithalos caudatus
(Linnaeus, 1758)

Scientific classification :
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Aves
Order: Passeriformes
Family: Aegithalidae
Genus: Aegithalos
Species: A. caudatus

The Long-tailed Tit, Aegithalos caudatus, is a very small passerine bird. It breeds in most of Europe and Asia. It is a non-migratory species.

It is closely related to the true tits, and in winter it is often found with tit flocks.

This is a very small bird at only 13–15 cm in length including its very long tail, which itself makes up 7–9 cm of the total. The Long-tailed Tit is black and brown above and whitish below, with reddish flanks. It has a white crown. North European birds (A. c. caudatus) have completely white heads and flanks.

This is a restless species, constantly on the move as it searches for insects and other small food items. It is usually found in small flocks, and has been described as an avian sheep.

Long-tailed Tits are birds of deciduous woodlands with undergrowth. They nest in a tree or shrub. Six to twelve eggs are laid in a woven closed nest. The nest is held together with spider webs, and camouflaged with lichen. Adult birds will find a relative's nest and help feeding their "nephews and nieces", if their own nest is predated.

The call is loud trisyllabic srih-srih-srih.

Merhaba Fikret bey,
Yine harika bir kare,düşmekte olan su damlası kompozisyonu zenginlerştirmiş.Detaylar,ışık,fon mükemmel.
Selamlar,ellerinize sağlık..

A difficult shot executed with your legendary professionalism, Fikret. The bird is wet and apparently, it is raining. In addition to the perfection of the shot of the main subject, you have also captured a drop of water in the process of falling off the tree stump.
A gem of a picture, indeed.
Thanks and regards.

Ciao Fikret, lovely bird in nice pose against a beautiful blurry BG, fantastic dropo, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Fikret
Very cute this little one...thanks for sharing

Hello Fikret,
This is a fantastic capture, maybe the best I have see of this lovely bird. This is not an easy shot at all, because they are too fast and active. The composition is great too, with the little drop on the left as a bonus. A masterpiece my friend! Cheers,

Hi Fikret . We have Lontailed Tits in the garden and i know how hard itt is to get this type of picture. You have sharp focusing and fine detail in the feathers. All with the water droplet. Well taken TFS.

Have a good weekend.

Hello Fikret
It's wonderful to see such nice detail and colours even on a dreary winter day. The petite Long Tailed Tit has an interesting feather pattern. Good notes, nicely cropped & framed.
Best regards Siggi

hello Fikret,

Selamlar fikret,
ellerine sağlık çok güzel bir tür ve izodaktil parmaklar çok net,

Bu minik kuşun bundan güzel ve detaylı bir portresi çekilemezdi herhalde Fikret, tenkide açık hiçbir nokta göremiyorum, ellerine sağlık dostum.

Hello Fikret
Wow ! what a beautiful image of this Long-tailed Tit, i like the way he is hanging on this branch, but also his well detailed fluffy plumage, the wonderful Bg with great DOF and the falling water droplet on the left
Have a great sunday

Hallo Fikret
Thanks for sharing this beautiful Long-tailed Tit with us. Tiny birds like these have a special place in my heart. This photo is jam packed with awesome detail and features. The arrangement of soft colours is very striking. A good close-up with clear details. I enjoyed the sight. The little black eye with its red lining is just to die for. The water droplet adds extra sparkle to this already super shot and is very impressive. The vivid green background compliments the image well. Thanks for sharing. Kind regards
