Blue Tits and Autumn Leaves

I thought only Americans giggle at the name of this group of birds in the genus Parus…but the Irish will giggle about it too, even though these birds live here and include three of the 20 most common garden birds in Ireland. Sigh.

If you’re American (or Canadian) and these birds look familiar to you, it’s because the Chickadee, though in a different genus, is in the same family. Also the titmice! In spite of the unfortunate alternate connotation of the name, there are some really beautiful BIRDS OF THE GENUS PARUS STOP GIGGLING

These photos were meant to be more about the trees, but I love the contrast of birds and leaves so you know
