黃山雀-Formosan Yellow Tit

Order: Passeriformes

Family: Paridae

學名: Parus holsti

英名: Formosan Yellow Tit

length: 13 cm

是一種棲息於中低海拔山區的雀鳥。台灣特有種,也是稀有的留鳥。 在溪頭其族群量較多,喜歡棲息於海拔2,000公尺以下之闊葉林,以海拔1,500公尺左右山區較常見,冬季時會遷移至海拔700公尺附近的低山區,甚至出現在森林邊緣之住家大樹上。

黃山雀常與畫眉科小型鳥,或其他山雀科鳥類混群活動,鳴聲婉轉悅耳,尤其繁殖期鳴聲更響亮。 營巢於天然樹洞中,舖以植物纖維、羽毛、苔蘚等為材料,有修補舊巢再使用的情形。

以昆蟲類為主食,植物之漿果、種籽、果實等亦為喜愛的食物之一。

 

The Yellow Tit (Parus holsti) is a species of bird in the Paridae family. It is endemic to central Taiwan.

 

Its natural habitat is montane temperate forest.

 

It has a restricted range and small population, and appears to be declining due to large-scale capture for export by the wild bird trade, so it is classed as Near Threatened by the IUCN.
