The Marsh tit



Marsh tit (Poecile palustris)- The sun is on and off, but here are a couple of pictures of this fast moving little tit. I used to have very few the past years in my garden, but this time round there are 5 or 6 a least – 300 mm + convert. 1/4

It stayed a while with its wings hanging as if to warn other birds to leave it alone! Quite cute on this one:

These are absolutely stunning, pin sharp photos of a smart little bird, Noushka, presumably taken in the south of France, in excellent natural light. Regarding its scientific name, the Marsh Tit has for several years now become Peocile (not Parus) palustris.

Oops, careless of me, the genus is Poecile not Peocile!

Iain, thanks for the information on the scientific name, which has now been corrected. The mistake was actually mine because I labelled Noushka’s photos.
