Recently a pretty azure tit has been causing a bit of a flutter in Hong Kong.

It’s wings boasting patches of bright blue and white, fluffy white breast, and a long dark-blue tail with white corners.

Measuring approximately 5 inches in length, and weighs only 11 to 13 grams.

Most do not migrate beside seeking a change in altitude during their breeding season.

During the breeding season, the azure tit has a fiercely protective instinct.

The bird will protect its brood of approximately 10 eggs, which it lays in a tree hole per season by hissing and biting if disturbed.

The gorgeous azure tit has also been known to breed with blue tits. This breeding with its Eurasian counterpart has created a hybrid species that looks different from both.

The hybrid Pleske’s tit has a darker blue crown than the usual white one of the azure parent, and a more muted yellow chest than the blue parent.

The azure tit is known as an elusive bird, preferring to forage for insects and seeds under cover of dense foliage.

The little bird can often be identified from its unique song, which includes a high-pitched cheerful ditty characterized by “chips, trills, and rattles.”

The famous bird has been depicted on a Romanian postage stamp in the early 1990s.

This coveted bird is known for its uniquely beautiful appearance.

The azure tit has only ever been spotted in small numbers and as far west as Finland.

Only 28 sightings have ever been recorded since 1992. This hasn’t stopped many avid bird watchers from persuing this unique creature to catch a glimpse.
