Great Tit

The Great Tit is the largest European tit, being similar in size to a Sparrow. It has a green back, yellow belly and a black head with white cheek patches. They have white wingbars on blue-grey wings.

Found throughout the UK, Great Tits are often seen with other tits in the garden. They can be distinguished by their larger size and have a "teecha teecha" call. Birds will use a garden nest box to rear their young, as well as in holes or dense twigs of trees.

Although mainly eating insects during the summer months, they are frequent visitors to gardens feeding on nuts and seeds from hanging feeders and on bird tables.
