PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD Nepal

A Cinereous Tit, spotted near Chitwan National Park in southern Nepal. This bird belongs to a group of tits that consists of several populations that were earlier treated as subspecies of the Great Tit (fig.).

 

Members of this group are cinereous, i.e. ashy grey, with white undersides and thus distinguishable from the Great Tit, which is greenish-backed with a rather yellowish underside.
