Bearded Tits

April 14th, 2014

I have been trying to get images of bearded tits for the past three years with no success. It took me three visits to this site in the Fens before seeing and photographing these male and female bearded tits. They are not a member of the tit family and were reclassified as parrot bills. However recently it was decided that they are unique and unrelated to any other living species. For me they are beautiful and elusive birds and it has been a challenge to capture these images.
