January Coal Tit

2/52- January Coal Tit

Chilly days and lingering snow in the Sierras and I am sneaking away for a little weekend break in Monterey, CA. I’m looking forward to some coastal wildlife walks and clam chowder. At this time of year, we can hope to see a variety of whales, Monarch butterflies, amazing sea life and birds.


This little bird is one from back home in England, a little garden favorite called a Coal Tit. They wear this distinctive black cap and have a hint of yellow on their bodies. At this time of year, they join with other tits to form flocks which roam through woodlands and gardens in search of food. Such a cheery sight during the short dark days of Winter.
