What's the difference between blue tits and great tits?

  • When you see the two together, it is clear that Great tits are significantly bigger than blue tits. With the former weighing in at 16g and the latter at 10g, the great tit is more than half as big as the blue tit.

  • Blue tits are distinctively blue and yellow while great tits have black heads and their wings are cblue-black rather than blue.

  • Blue tits have a black eye stripe and a blue cap, leaving the rest of their heads white.
