SPECIES INFO

The Black-browed Tit (Aegithalos bonvaloti) is a species of bird in the Aegithalidae family. It is found in China and Burma. Its natural habitats are boreal forests and temperate forests. It was formerly considered conspecific with the Rufous-fronted Tit (A. iouschistos) of the central and eastern Himalayas but is now often regarded as a separate species. Sometimes the subspecies A. b. sharpei (Burmese Tit) of western Burma is also treated as a species.

It is a small, long-tailed bird, 11-12 cm long. It has grey upperparts, rufous breast and flanks and a white belly. The head is buff with a broad black mask, white forehead and a white bib, speckled black in the centre. The Burmese Tit has white rather than buff on the head, a dark breastband and a buff belly.
