- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 623 species and subspecies in the Family Paridae.
Baeolophus is a genus of bird, commonly known as titmice in the Paridae family, all of which are native to North America. In the past, most authorities retained Baeolophus as a subgenus within the genus Parus, but treatment as a distinct genus, initiated by the American Ornithologists Union, is now widely accepted. [more]
Cyanistes is a genus of tits. It is frequently subsumed into Parus. It consists of a number of small species found in temperate Europe and Asia and Northern Africa [more]
Lophophanes is a small genus of birds in the Paridae family. [more]
Macholophus is a genus of birds in the tit family that is recognized by some authorities, such as the Handbook of the Birds of the World's Internet Bird Collection (2004?2007). It is often considered to be a subgenus of Parus). [more]
The Sultan Tit (Melanochlora sultanea) is a large songbird (about 17 cm long) with a yellow crest, dark bill, black upperparts plumage and yellow underparts. The sexes are similar. The female has greenish black upperparts and yellowish throat. The young bird is duller than the adult and has a shorter crest. It is the only member of the monotypic genus Melanochlora, which is fairly distinct from the Parus tits with the nearest relative being the monotypic Sylviparus. [more]
Parus is a genus of Old World birds in the tit family. As defined here, it contains the following species: [more]
Periparus is a genus of birds in the tit family that, as defined here, consists of the following species: [more]
Poecile is a genus of bird in the tit family that is often lumped into the genus Parus. It has 13?15 species, which are scattered across North America, Europe and Asia; the North American species are the chickadees. In the past, most authorities retained Poecile as a subgenus within the genus Parus, but treatment as a distinct genus, initiated by the American Ornithologists Union, is now widely accepted. This is supported by mtDNA cytochrome b sequence analysis. [more]
The Ground Tit, Tibetan Ground-tit or Hume's Ground-tit (Pseudopodoces humilis) is a lark-like bird which lives to the north of the Himalayas. It is also known as Hume's Groundpecker. It was formerly thought to belong to the family Corvidae which includes the crows and jays and was called as the Hume's Ground Jay or Tibetan Ground Jay. This species has since been identified as a member of the tit family (Paridae) and is the only species in the genus Pseudopodoces. [more]
The Yellow-browed Tit (Sylviparus modestus) is a species of bird in the family Paridae. It is placed in the monotypic genus Sylviparus. [more]
At least 4 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Sylviparus.
