[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Marsh Tit Poecile palustris is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae and genus Poecile, closely related to the Willow, Père David's and Songar Tits. It is small (around 12 cm long and weighing 12 g) with a black crown and nape, pale cheeks, brown back and greyish-brown wings and tail. Between 8 and 11 subspecies are recognised. This bird's close resemblance to the Willow Tit can cause identification problems, especially in the United Kingdom where the local subspecies of the two are very similar (there, they were not recognised as separate species until 1897).

Globally, the Marsh Tit is classified as Least Concern, although there is evidence of a decline in numbers (in the UK, numbers have dropped by more than 50% since the 1970s, for example). It can be found throughout temperate Europe and northern Asia and, despite its name, it occurs in a range of habitats including dry woodland. The Marsh Tit is omnivorous; its food includes caterpillars, spiders and seeds. It nests in tree holes, choosing existing hollows to enlarge, rather than excavating its own. A clutch of 5-9 eggs is laid.

Hi Tibi,beautiful capture from an excellent point of view and whit very good details and colors,very nice composition too.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Good day Bartha

What happen here!!!?? this image looks like taken with an expired Kodak Ultra Max 400 film. The colors seems washed almost completely my friend, and on top of that the sharpness has been neglected big time in my opinion as well. I have no idea how you've managed to achieve this, but I think that your equipment are capable of far better results. Please, check your White balance settings ... Take care and keep trying !
