|Marsh Tit (Poecile palustris) Tits, Chickadees and Titmice (Paridae)|
|Sumpmejse Carbonero Palustre|
2019-01-11 Søndersø, Sjælland, Denmark
The more common of the two black-capped tits in Denmark. Artifact in photo 2 shows what looks like a whitish wing panel, resembling the other species Willow Tit, but both geography and the small and well-limited black chin plus the overall dark brown look eliminates this possibility.

A rare species on Amager. My first. However, it's rather common both in Scania, Sweden, and in humid willow habitat in the larger Copenhagen area, on the island Zealand, not far away.
Looking at Dofbasen there have been few records continuously through the last ten years, why it probably is a question of time before it is established on Amager too. Same expansion behavior as it happened with European Nuthatch.
