[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Great Tit (Parus major) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common species throughout Europe, Asia and parts of North Africa in any sort of woodland. It is resident, and most Great Tits do not migrate. In the past this species was considered a ring species with several subspecies covering a wide distribution, but these have now been separated as the Cinereous Tit of southern Asia, and the Japanese Tit of Japan.

The Great Tit is a distinctive bird, with a black head and neck, prominent white cheeks, olive upperparts and yellow underparts. It is predominantly insectivorous. It has adapted well to human changes in the environment and is a common and familiar bird in urban parks and gardens.

Very nice photo - sharp, good colors, interesting pose of subject, and nice background (especially with the snow). TFS,

Bonjour Jacek
Oui, c'est pas évident d'avoir l'oeil qui brille. Belle composition décentrée et en diagonale de cette mésange charbonnière.
Meilleures saluations ...JP
