Willow Tit (Poecile montanus)

Appearance:

Very similar to Marsh Tit, but cheeks whiter, head bigger, and upperparts greyer with white wing-panel. Black bib wider and bigger than in Marsh Tit. Lacks white spot at base of upper mandible. Willow Tits in Great Britain are warmer brown and are more difficult to separate from Marsh Tit.

Sound:

Call: Most characteristic call a frequently uttered, nasal "ti ti chaa chaa chaa". First notes high pitched and the following lower, coarse, nasal and drawn. Sometimes uttered without the introductory high pitched notes. Song: One or two soft, clear, melancholic notes repeated in a slow, even rhythm. At first rising slightly in pitch, then gradually falling. In some areas song is evenly pitched. Other sounds: high pitced "zi zi" similar to other tits.
