Parus aplonotus (Indian black-lored tit)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Indian black-lored tit or Indian yellow tit (Grimmett et al., 2011), (Parus aplonotus) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The yellow-cheeked tit is probably its closest relative, and both may be related to the yellow tit. These three tits almost certainly form a distinct lineage as evidenced by morphology, and mtDNA cytochrome b sequence analysis (Gill et al., 2005). The subgenus name Macholophus may apply for them.This species is a resident breeder on the Indian subcontinent.
