White-winged Tit

The White-winged Tit (Parus nuchalis) also known as the White-naped Tit, is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The species is distributed in scrub forest in the Kutch region of Gujarat in western India and also in small areas in southern India, especially in the Kaveri river valley. It uses old woodpeckers nest holes for nesting.

The populations of the White-winged Tit rapidly declined in the recent past and continue to decline due to loss of tropical habitat. It therefore qualifies as a vulnerable species, perhaps endangered.
