Parus aplonotus (Indian black-lored tit)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Indian black-lored tit or Indian yellow tit (Grimmett et al., 2011), (Machlolophus aplonotus) is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. The yellow-cheeked tit is probably its closest relative, and both may be related to the yellow tit. These three tits almost certainly form a distinct lineage as evidenced by morphology, and mtDNA cytochrome b sequence analysis (Gill et al., 2005). The subgenus name Macholophus may apply for them. Females and young birds are duller than males. The underpart colour becomes increasingly dull from north to south through this tit's range.
