The Bearded Tit or Bearded Reedling (Panurus biarmicus) is a small, sexually dimorphic reed-bed passerine bird. It is frequently known as the bearded tit, due to some similarities to the long-tailed tit, or the bearded parrotbill. The Bearded Tit frequents the reedbeds and the associated vegetation, in or beside fresh and brackish water, marshes and swamps. It is from Europe and Asia, from Western Europe, Turkey, Iran to Manchuria. This finch bird is able to perch between two reeds, grasping each stem with one foot. Pairs often sleep together perched on a reed stem.  Bearded tit finches for sale are small orange-brown birds with a long tail and an undulating flight. The male has a grey head and black moustaches (not a beard); the lower tail coverts are also black. The female is generally paler, with no black. Flocks often betray their presence in a reedbed by their characteristic “ping” call. PLEASE PROVIDE A LOT OF SPACE FOR THE BEARDED TIT. THEY ARE VERY ACTIVE AND AVIARIES ARE BEST.

See our FAQs for more info.

It’s elegant plumage and affectionate dispositon make for a lovely pet.

Breeding: Bearded Tits build their nest site among close-growing stems of reeds, sedges, and other marsh vegetation. Typically among more or less vertical stems, but also among broken or flattened vegetation, in clusters of basal leaves, or built into rim of nest of heron. Nearly always protected above by roof of sheltering vegetation. Nest is a deep cup of dead leaves of reeds and other marsh plants, lined with reed flower-heads, usually also feathers, occasionally mammal hair.
