2016-17 winter ringing of tit community

|Winters 2016 and 2017, close to Paris (France)|

For the third year, we investigate the winter community dynamics by ringing several species of tits.  We focus our survey on the four most common species (Great tit Parus major, Blue tit Cyanistes caeruleus, Long-tailed bushtit Aegithalos caudatus and Marsh tit Poecile palustris). On legs of each individual are fitted three coloured rings to make a unique colour combination,  to enable us to recognize individuals and to study their foraging behaviour by a camera trap survey.
