|Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus) Tits, Chickadees and Titmice (Paridae)|
|Topmejse Herrerillo Capuchino|
2020-04-11 Sydvestpynten, Amager, Denmark
Subspecies: [likely critstatus]
A rare visitor to the island. Closest breeding grounds are in southern Sweden and western Denmark (Jutland and some islands west of the strait of Storebælt).
Probably the same bird showed up the first time last year repeatedly being seen at the observation post, but always only a few minutes before it redraws back to the forested areas in the background.
The species is normally sedentary, but this bird probably came with other migrating tits from southern Sweden rather than from the west.
