Special birds: Sombre Tit

Sombre Tit Parus lugubris is resident and sedentary and in fact quite common locally in deciduous woodlands, especially oakwoods, in the Balkans. The furthest west it gets is Slovenia and Croatia, the furthest north Romania. It has a large brown hood, a significant black bib and a white cheek. It is a large tit (over 13cm in length) and overall rather greyish. This photo taken in Romania by Daniel Petrescu.
