[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Willow Tit (Poecile montanus) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common resident breeder throughout temperate and subarctic Europe and northern Asia. It is more of a conifer specialist than the closely related Marsh Tit, which explains it breeding much further north. It is resident, and most birds do not migrate.

In the east of its range it is much paler than Marsh Tit, but as one goes west the various races become increasingly similar, so much so that it was not recognised as a breeding bird in Great Britain until the end of the 19th century, despite being widespread.

Hello Jozsef,

Hi Szabo,you back in the birds world whit this fantastic portrait...impossible to comment a beautiful work like that,just my greats compliments another time.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano

Hi Szabo,

You catch well this lovely bird by very good focus, and it's good at entire color tones. It's impressive for black head, body with white/slight orange and cute eyes. And, the cntrast between this clear target and part where the rest grows dim draws out a good effect for the whole, I think.


Hello Jozsef
Beautiful photo with very good composition, wonderful colours and impressive sharpness.
