Shy or bold, which is better for survival? In one species the differing personalities each seems to have a positive effect on survival.
Here’s a Great Tit picture I took last year in London:GRT-TIT The various tit species in Europe–like Great and Blue and Willow and Coal–are all in the chickadee family. They have chickadee-like calls and behavior but the Great and Blue are brightly colored, not like their drab American cousins. The Great Tit is so named for its size, which is that of a rotund Song Sparrow, larger than other tits or our Yankee varieties or chickadees.
