YellowTit

April 22, 2017 – Yellow Tit (Machlolophus holsti or Parus holsti)

These tits are found only in the mountains of central Taiwan. Though their diet is not well known, it seems to include small invertebrates and their larvae. They build their nests from dried leaves, bamboo, lichen, moss, and feathers. Classified as Near Threatened by the IUCN, their population is thought to be decreasing, due mostly to capture for the wild bird trade.
