Coal tit
This Coal tit painting illustrates a small distinctive member of the tit family, with slate blue- grey upper parts, 2 white wing bars and white tips to the inner flight feathers. The head is glossy black with a prominent white nape patch, which is its most distinguishing feature. The cheeks are white and enclosed by a large black bib. The under parts are white washed with a dull buff on the flanks. It is a gregarious little bird that is often seen in flocks of mixed tits.

Its habitat is coniferous and deciduous woods and gardens. The nest is in a tree hole, a hole in the ground or bank among tree roots, or in a nest box. The nest consists of a neat cup of moss bound together with spiders’ webs and lined with hair and feathers. The nest is built by the female in late April, the 7 – 9 (occasionally 12) white eggs are speckled with rusty brown.

The coal tit feeds on insects and their larvae and spiders, and food scraps and peanuts put out in gardens. It is widespread in Britain and Ireland.

This is an original watercolour coat tit painting on Fabriano artistico paper. It is window mounted on ivory,  size 25 x 30 cms when mounted.
