Physical characteristics

Family members range from 6.3 in (16 cm) to a mere 3.5 in (8.9 cm) in the aptly named pygmy tit (Psaltria exilis). All have long tails, particularly the long-tailed tit (Aegithalos cau-datus), whose tail can make up half its total body length. Adult males and females have a similar plumage. They are generally dark above (gray or brown and lighter) and often white below. Many species have black mask and some show hints of pink in their feathering. A loose arrangement of body feathers makes them appear fluffy and endears them to many observers.
