The Yellow-breasted Tit (Cyanistes cyanus flavipectus) is a subspecies of the Azure Tit which is especially common in Central Asia. Outside this area, the small birds are only rare vagrants. Individuals can be found in woodlands, scrubs, and marshes where they breed in tree holes. Their diet includes insects and seeds. I have photographed this species in the mountains near Denov in southeastern Uzbekistan during a journey in October 2014.
