Bird-bath at forest edge ... 7

Bird bath at the
forest-edge provided
a very rare
opportunity ...
...to get three types
of these exclusive Tits
in one frame ...

Something we never
came across during
decades of birding ...

... and unlikely to
get another chance
soon ...

The three seen here are ...

Black-lored Tit
Black-throated Tit
( ... aka Red-headed Tit )
Green-backed Tit

Watch them in a video-clip ...
