One Of The Prettiest Birds Out There, A Veritable Flying Rainbow Of Color!

The saying goes, “life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns, while this saying might apply to many, it doesn’t apply to the white-browed tit warbler.

Appearing very much like a flying rainbow of color it is, without doubt, one of the prettiest birds out there. Our last story on this bird proved so popular we thought we would add to it.

Located in China and parts of the Himalayas, the white-browed tit-warbler lives in Tian Shan and the Himalayas, mainly in boreal forests. They have a purplish-blue coat with a cute chestnut cap and pink belly.

Just above the eye, their eyebrow can look grey and or white. As with many birds, the males are much more vibrant than their female tit-warbler counterparts. Both males and females weigh between 6 and 8 g (0.21–0.28 oz) and are 8.5–10 cm (3.3–3.9 in) long.

These birds are not only beautiful, but they’re also very polite as their tweets make the sound, “sirrrrrr.” The white-browed tit-warblers live in pairs during the breeding season, but around its end, they join flocks of 25 or more. They also have a very colorful diet that ranges from small insects and spiders to small quantities of berries and seeds during the fall and winter.

Fortunately, these colorful birds are not threatened by extinction, which could be due to their well-camouflaged nests or the lack of local predators in their nesting areas.

Have you ever taken a picture of the white-browed tit-warbler or any other unique-looking birds? We’d love to see them in the comments!
