Fire-capped Tit Cephalopyrus flammiceps flammiceps   - Adult male in breeding plumage
Fire-capped Tit
Photographer : © Munish Kaushik
Location :Sattal, Uttarakahand, India
Date : 12 March 2014
English synonyms:
Bird Family :Remizinae - Penduline tits
Red Data Status :Least Concern
Remarks :It was in a mixed flock with Oriental White-eyes Zosterops palpebrosus, and it was only after I scanned the bush thoroughly, I was able to figure out a Fire-capped Tit in the group. The tree it was hopping/perching on was on a steep cliff making it difficult to sight and keep the focus on the bird. Also, the weather was quite bad and light was quite low. - MK
