|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A resident bird in the Himalays and peninsular India's Hills. |
It is an easy tit to recognise in most of India, large in size at 13 cm, with a broad black line (broader in the male) down its otherwise yellow front. The large crest, neck, throat and head are black with yellow cheeks and supercilia. Upperparts are olive-green. It has two white or yellowish wingbars and white outer tail feathers.
Females and young birds are duller than males. The underpart colour becomes increasingly dull from north to south through this tit's range.
Took the picture on a cloudy morning near Sat tal (Nainital).
