TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS SPECIES
Another very frequent small bird in the island, the Tenerife Blue Tit (Parus caeruleus teneriffae), resembles a lot our Blue Tit, but colours appears more contrasted and darker. In addition, Canarian species lacks white wing bar, and its crown is rather dark blue. This tit is found as well at sea level as in the Canarian Pine forest up to 2,000 metres of elevation in the volcano slopes.
They live in flocks, feeding in small groups while uttering their high-pitched, brief and rapid calls. In Puerto de la Cruz, they nest in holes in palm trees in city parks. Very mischievous, their behaviour reminds us those of their cousins!
