The popular saying, “Life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns,” doesn’t apply to the little tit-warbler. This tiny, flying rainbow has such a unique color pattern that it is, without a doubt, one of the prettiest and most colorful birds out there!

The white-browed tit-warbler lives in China, the Tian Shan, and the Himalayas, and can be found in boreal forests. They have a purplish-blue coat with a chestnut cap, a pinkish belly, and an eyebrow that looks grey or white. The males have more vibrant colors than the female tit-warblers. They weigh between 6 and 8 g (0.21–0.28 oz) and are 8.5–10 cm (3.3–3.9 in) long.

These birds are not only beautiful, but they’re also very polite as their tweets make the sound, “sirrrrrr.” The white-browed tit-warblers live in pairs during the breeding season, but around its end, they join flocks of 25 or more. They also have a very colorful diet that ranges from small insects and spiders to small quantities of berries and seeds during the fall and winter.
Fortunately, these colorful birds are not threatened by extinction, which could be due to their well-camouflaged nests or the lack of local predators in their nesting areas.
