EURASIAN BLUE TIT
Easily recognised by its blue and yellow plumage, the Eurasian blue tit is a small Passerine bird found in most parts of Europe and West Asia.
It is usually a non-migratory bird and lives in deciduous or mixed woodlands. However, in cold areas it might move closer to civilisation in the winter to make the search for food easier.
The Eurasian blue tit, measuring only 12 cm and weighing 11 grams, is a very agile small bird. It can hang from almost anywhere – upside down and sometimes with only one foot – when searching for food.
The garments in the Eurasian blue tit collection have been named after places where you may find the bird.
