Eurasian Blue Tit

This week my Saturday Bird is the Eurasian Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus), a small member of the tit family.

When this photo was taken the species common English name was simply Blue Tit. Since then scientists have been DNA testing various species. As a result the bird has been split into two different species, the African Blue Tit being the other species.

The DNA testing also resulted in the two species being moved to a different family which means that the scientific name has also been changed since I captioned all my photos.
