    A willow tit sounding off. This is Poecile montanus, right? Or is it a marsh tit, Poecile palustris?

    Willow tit is hömötiainen in Finnish, marsh tit is viitatiainen. I have no idea what hömö means, viita is a small thicket.

    Various peoples seem not to agree, which tree should Poecile montanus be connected with. Swedes and Danes call it talltita/fyrremejse (pine tit), Norwegians granmeis (spruce tit) and German and English speakers willow tit/Weidenmeise.
