The yellow-browed tit ("
modestus") is a species of bird in the family Paridae. It is placed in the monotypic genus
The genus "Baeolophus" is endemic to America. The genus "Parus" includes the great tit that ranges from Western Europe to Indonesia. "Cyanistes" has a European and Asian distribution (also into northern Africa), and the three remaining genera, "Pseudopodoces", "
", and "Melanochlora", are all restricted to Asia.
The fire-capped tit is not shy. It is always active, giving little wing strokes like a warbler. It is reminiscent of the small tit "
modestus". During migration and in winter, it is usually found in small flocks, but groups of up to 100 may be seen. Most of the time, these groups, flying high above the bare hills, are monotypic, but they sometimes join mixed flocks when foraging.
The sultan tit ("Melanochlora sultanea") is a large songbird (about 17 cm long) with a yellow crest, dark bill, black upperparts plumage and yellow underparts. The sexes are similar. The female has greenish black upperparts and yellowish throat. The young bird is duller than the adult and has a shorter crest. It is the only member of the monotypic genus Melanochlora, which is fairly distinct from the "Parus" tits with the nearest relative being the monotypic "
With the exception of the three monotypic genera "
", "Melanochlora", and "Pseudopodoces", the tits are extremely similar in appearance, and have been described as "one of the most conservative avian families in terms of general morphology". The typical length of the family is between in length; when the monotypic genera are added, this range is from . In weight, the family ranges from , this contracts to when the three atypical genera are removed. The majority of the variation within the family comes in plumage, and particularly colour.
Recently, the large "Parus" group has been gradually split into several genera (as indicated below), initially by North American ornithological authorities and later elsewhere. Whereas in the mid-1990s, only "Pseudopodoces", "Baeolophus", "Melanochlora", and "
" were considered well-supported by the available data as distinct from "Parus". Today, this arrangement is considered paraphyletic as indicated by mtDNA cytochrome "b" sequence analysis, and "Parus" is best restricted to the "Parus major"—"Parus fasciiventer" clade, and even the latter species' closest relatives might be considered a distinct genus.
