The appearance of tits is comparable with sparrows, but intelligence in these species is next level

The cute small birds in this genus have bulky bodies, colorful plumage, and long tail feathers (not too long). Like any other bird, they also work hard to build a nest. Research shows that first-year females build more in-depth nests while older males provide better home care. Therefore such pairing increases the chances of survival of a chick.

The small yet intelligent tits show unusual behaviors like opening milk bottles or using pine needles to extract larvae from tree holes. Such acts raise questions in avian social learning, like what is the origin of this behavior? There is a possibility that they might adapt according to the environment for survival. However, we’re yet to discover new and exciting aspects about these birds.
