VERDIN (Auriparus flaviceps): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Penduline tits are widely found from Africa through Europe and into Asia. One species, the verdin, is located in North America, specifically in southwest United States and northern Mexico.


Penduline tits are found in a large range of open country habitats including deserts, large reed beds in marshes and along riverbanks, and scrublands and forests.

Penduline tits eat many invertebrates (animals without backbones), fruits, and small seeds. They grasp food with one foot while pecking at it with their bill. The birds often search in spider's nests and crevices (cracks) in trees.


Penduline tits are not considered to be threatened. Some species, however, are declining in numbers due to increasing amounts of farming and general human development of their habitat.
