In Real Life
The Long-Tailed Tit is a small bird native to Europe and Russia, Korea and Japan. They're only 13-15 centimeters long which already includes the 7-9 cm long namegiving tail. They're mostly white with black and a few pink or grey bits. Their body is round and their bill is very short. They live in forests with well-developed shrub.
The Long-Tailed Tit lives in small flocks of family members outside of the breeding season. They help each other survive the winters until they break up into monogamous pairs to breed. They have a high nest failure rate because of predators. However, if they fail, they are likely to help other pairs with their breeds, usually a male relative, increasing the survivability of the offspring and adults during the winter. They often communicate through sounds and vocals. Their nests a large and domed, with one opening.
