White-shouldered Tit

Melaniparus guineensis Shelley, 1900

The White-shouldered Black Tit (Parus guineensis), also known as the White-shouldered Tit, is a passerine bird in the tit family. It breeds in a belt across Africa from Senegal in the west to Kenya and Ethiopia in the east. It is sometimes considered conspecific with the more southerly White-winged Black Tit Parus leucomelas and, like that species, it is mainly black with a white wing patch, but differs in that it has a pale eye.
