Long-Tailed Tit

A charming little bird, living in hedgerows and woods. They have a pretty pink body, black head with a white crest, and black wings and tail that is almost as long as its body.

These birds live in groups, flitting through the hedge looking for food. They are widespread and common across the UK. Nests are built in hedges from moss, spiders web and feathers, but they may also use nest boxes.

Long-tailed Tits feed mainly on insects and other bugs, but also berries, peanuts and suet from hanging feeders.
