Caspian Tit

Poecile hyrcanus (Sarudny & Loudon, 1905)

The Caspian Tit (Poecile hyrcanus, formerly Parus hyrcanus) is a passerine bird in the tit family. It is often lumped with Sombre Tit Poecile lugubris (del Hoyo et al. 2007), but some research suggests that it is a separate species, more closely related to Willow and Songar Tits (Harrap & Quinn 1996).
