Lophophanes cristatus (Parus cristatus) is a sedentary mountain bird of the Paride family, widespread in mountain regions across Europe, where it prefers coniferous forests, especially spruce forests. However, it also frequents the upper part of the mixed forest floor. Although it is a sedentary bird, there are still seasonal movements, during very heavy winters some specimens descend to lower altitudes. During this cold period of the year they form mixed flocks, along with other parus species. It is easily recognizable by the sharp and high motif he has on his head, with white and black spots, and pointing backwards. The cheeks are white, behind the ear region with a horseshoe black stripe. Black chick and goose. The dorsal brown-gray dowry, the tortoise and subcode a reddish tinge. The lower whitish side with rust on the flanks. Relatively strong, bluish legs. Black, sharp, conical black, black-red iris. He has a short thrill like a cat twirl, resounding. It feeds during the breeding season especially with insect eggs and spiders, and during the cold season and with different seeds. Food looks for it in the canopy, sitting down with the same ease as when in the normal position.

Lophophanes cristatus (Parus cristatus) è un uccello di montagna sedentario della famiglia Paride, diffuso nelle regioni montane di tutta Europa, dove predilige la foresta di conifere, in particolare le foreste di abeti rossi. Tuttavia, frequenta anche la parte superiore del suolo misto della foresta. Sebbene sia un uccello sedentario, ci sono anche dei movimenti stagionali, durante inverni molto pesanti alcuni esemplari scendono a quote più basse. Durante questo periodo freddo dell'anno formano stormi misti, insieme ad altre specie parus. È facilmente riconoscibile dal motivo che ha sulla testa, con macchie bianche e nere, e rivolto all'indietro. Le guance sono bianche, dietro l'orecchio con una striscia nera. La parte dorsale grigio-marrone, sotto, una sfumatura rossastra. Gambe relativamente forti e bluastre. Ha un brivido breve ma forte. Si nutre durante la stagione riproduttiva soprattutto con le uova d'insetti e i ragni, e durante la stagione fredda con semi diversi.
