Rufous-vented Tit (Periparus rubidiventris beavani)

Rufous-vented Tit (Periparus rubidiventris beavani) at about 3,500m altitude on the Balangshan Pass, Sichuan, China

 

This tit is a native of the western Himalayas, but has a very large range, occurring in parts of Bhutan, China, Pakistan, India, Myanmar and Nepal. Its natural habitats are boreal forests and temperate forests. In Bhutan for example, P. r. beavani is a rather common all-year resident in moist Bhutan Fir (Abies densa) forests, between approximately 3,000 and 4,000 meters ASL. Widespread and by no means rare, it is not considered a threatened species by the IUCN.
