Eurasian penduline tit

provided by wikipedia EN

The Eurasian penduline tit or European penduline tit (Remiz pendulinus) is a passerine bird of the genus Remiz. The genus name is the Polish word for the Eurasian penduline tit, and pendulinus is Latin for "hanging down”, which refers to its nest.[2]

It is relatively widespread throughout the Palearctic. The breeding range of the species in Western Europe experienced an expansion during the 1980s and 1990s.[3] This was accompanied by an expansion of the species’ winter range and reached as far south as northern Morocco.[4]

It builds an elaborate hanging nest, formerly used in Central Europe as children's slippers.[5]

This species was first described as Motacilla pendulinus by Linnaeus in his Systema naturae in 1758.[6]

The penduline tit has a large range, estimated at 1-10 million square kilometres (0.4-3.8 million square miles), and a population estimated at 420,000–840,000 individuals in Europe alone, and there is evidence that the population is increasing. It is therefore not believed to meet the IUCN Red List threshold criterion of a population decline of more than 30% in ten years or three generations, and is evaluated as Least Concern.[1]
