Crested Tit in the warm winter sun

Well, it has been a strange year for photography, with so many restrictions for most of the year, it has been a challenge to keep motivated and inspired.  So I thought I would end my last Image of the Month for 2020 with my favourite little forest bird, the Crested Tit, it always brings a smile to my face.  It has such a distinct call that sounds like a trill.  For such a wee bird, it’s call is much louder than most of the other little forest birds.  You hear it before you see it.

You can sample it’s call from the sound file below.  This recording is two crested tit’s calling to each other.
