Parus spilonotus (Yellow-cheeked Tit)

Wikipedia Abstract

The yellow-cheeked tit (Machlolophus spilonotus) is a species of bird in the Paridae family. It is found in Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, Hong Kong, India, Laos, Burma, Nepal, Thailand, and Vietnam. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests. The yellow-cheeked tit was formerly one of the many species in the genus Parus but was moved to Machlolophus after a molecular phylogenetic analysis published in 2013 showed that the members of the new genus formed a distinct clade.
