Un uccellino “rock”!

2019jan (1)

…oppure “punk”,  se volete,  vista la cresta cosi’ particolare! 

Questo piccolissimo volatile,  stanziale in tutta la Finlandia fino in Lapponia,  che in inverno viene a colazione da noi ogni mattina e’ la Cincia dal ciuffo,  manco a dirlo!  (Lophophanes cristatus)In finnico si chiama:  Töyhtötiainen.  Dimensioni ridottissime:  e’ lunga 12 cm e pesa 10-13 grammi,  ma si fa valere in mezzo agli altri uccellini:  non si lascia portare via i bocconi migliori di cibo.  Questa cincia vive nelle foreste di conifere di tutta l’Europa settentrionale e da noi si trova in tutto l’arco Alpino;  non vive nel sud Italia e nel bacino del Mediterraneo.  Non e’ un migratore.  Maschio e femmina sono uguali ed hanno entrambi questa deliziosa crestina sul capo.

Ma quanto e’ “rock” la Natura??

Such a “rock” little bird!        …or “punk”,  if you prefer,  given that crest on the head! 

This little beauty,  who survives very well in all Finland,  including Lapland and comes to breakfast to our feeders daily,  is the European Crested tit  (Lophophanes cristatus);  in Finnish:  Töyhtötiainen.  It is a very small bird:  12cm length and weight just 10 to 13 grams,  but it is very lively and can defend its own food from other passerines.   It is resident in all central and north Europe in pine forests,  it does not migrate and it does not survive in the Mediterranean areas;  in Italy it is visible only in the Alps.  Both male and female are similar in appearance and both have this pretty crest on their heads.

Isn’t Nature so “rock”??
