Genus: Remiz


Four species of Penduline-Tits from Europe and Asia.
They share a sharply pointed conical bill with a more or less straight culmen.
They are distinctively patterned with a black face mask. Females are similar to males but duller.


Remiz is a genus in the family Remizidae.
All four species form a superspecies and are sometimes lumped in just one species, Remiz pendulinus. An alternative treatment lumps Eurasian Penduline Tit with Black-headed Penduline Tit and White-crowned Penduline Tit with Chinese Penduline Tit.
