Adorable moments about Varied Tit (Sittiparus Varius)

The Varied Tit is a small (11 cm) bird with uniform dark rufous underparts, a black bib, a black cap with a whitish spot on the crown, a light buff forehead and lores and whitish cheek patches.  The back, wings and upper tail are gray, and there is a thin rufous border between the upper mantle and the black cap.  The iris, bill and legs are black.  The Taiwan subspecies castaneoventris is distinctly smaller than mainland races, is deeper chestnut below, lacks the pale median line on the breast and is grayer above with a reduced chestnut border on the upper mantle.

The Varied Tit is a timid and secretive creature. It is frequently encountered in pairs or small flocks in the forest canopy, where it feeds. It eats insects, as well as tiny nuts and seeds, and stores nuts for later consumption. A piercing "pit," a high-pitched "spit-spit-see-see," and a scolding "ch-chi-chi" are among the cries made by the Varied Tit. Its music is complex and diverse, and it frequently includes pure whistled notes.
