    Latin name
    Parus major

    Common name
    Great tit

    Family
    Tits (Paridae)

    Overview
    The largest UK tit - green and yellow with a striking glossy black head with white cheeks and a distinctive two-syllable song. It is a woodland bird which has readily adapted to man-made habitats to become a familiar garden visitor. It can be quite aggressive at a birdtable, fighting off smaller tits. In winter it joins with blue tits and others to form roaming flocks which scour gardens and countryside for food.

    Where to see them
    Woodlands, parks and gardens across the UK. Absent only from the Northern and Western Isles of Scotland.

    When to see them
    All year round.

    What they eat
    Insects, seeds and nuts.
