Parus xanthogenys (Black-lored Tit)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Himalayan black-lored tit (Parus xanthogenys) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The yellow-cheeked tit is probably its closest relative, and it may also be related to the yellow tit. These three tits almost certainly form a distinct lineage, as indicated by morphology, and mtDNA cytochrome b sequence analysis (Gill et al., 2005).Lore in the bird's common name refers to the area between eye and bill.This species is a resident breeder in the Himalayas.
