Tufted titmouse (Parus bicolor).—Dan Sudia—The National Audubon Society Collection/Photo Researchers

Any of several woodland and garden songbird species with rather stout pointed bills in multiple genera of the family Paridae. The great tit (Parus major), found in Europe, North Africa, and Asia nearly to Java, is about 6 in. (14 cm) long. It has a white face, a black head, and a black centre line on its underparts, which are yellow or buffy. The best-known North American species of crested tit is the tufted titmouse (P. bicolor), a 7-in. (17-cm) bluish gray bird with pinkish brown flanks. See also chickadee.
