The Azure Tits Have Gorgeous Icy White And Deep Blue Colors

We love color, especially in nature, but there is something about pure white that draws the eye and the heart.

We’ve probably all felt it at one time or another. That perfect glisten of fresh snow, the majesty of a white tiger, the grace of a snowy owl, they all have an extra special something.

There are countless colorful birds with stunning bright plumages, but this time, we decided to focus on something a little different. The Azure Tits have a plumage that combines gorgeous pure frosty whites, with complimenting deep navy blues.

Besides being gorgeous birdies(with a funny name), the Azure Tits are the most adorable little critters.

They’re relatively small, with the adults measuring between 4 – 5 inches (10 – 12.5 CM). They’re mostly white except for a dash of blue on their bellies, and a stripe of dark blue across their eyes.

The Azure Tits’ habitat spreads all the way from Central Asia to Russia in the north and Pakistan in the West. Their close relatives – The Eurasian Blue Tits, look very similar to them, but they have more of a yellowish belly.

Eurasian Blue Tits and Azure tits aren’t just similar externally, but can also interbreed. This results in offsprings, that are called Pleske’s tits, who have differing amounts of yellow in their plumage. Thanks to their large broods of 10 eggs, they are safe from extinction. They nest inside cavities within trees and make the sweetest little sounds!
