From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Eurasian blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus is a small passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The bird is easily recognisable by its blue and yellow plumage.
Eurasian blue tits, usually resident and non-migratory birds, are widespread and a common resident breeder throughout temperate and subarctic Europe and western Asia in deciduous or mixed woodlands with a high proportion of oak. They usually nest in tree holes, although they easily adapt to nest boxes where necessary. Their main rival for nests and in the search for food is the larger great tit.
The Eurasian blue tit prefers insects and spiders for its diet. Outside the breeding season, they also eat seeds and other vegetable-based foods. The birds are famed for their skill, as they can cling to the outermost branches and hang upside down when looking for food.

Hello Jiri,
I love the contrasting colors of these beautiful little birds. Their body shape and markings always remind me of our chickadees, even though the colors are completely different. The detail in it's plumage is awesome and the exposure is perfect. Great work!!
PS. When I was in Israel a few months ago I photographed a bird which appeared very similar, but the photo was of poor quality and I didn't bother to post it.
