The scientific name of this bird is Panurus biarmicus while the most common name stands as the Bearded Reedling. It has uniqueness just from its tip to toe. Even the eyes and the beak are of some speciality. The two marks that appear on its face make a “mustache”.

“Whiskers” can only be seen in male birds. Females do not possess them. However, females generally have darker beaks than the males.


The bearded reedling is of course well known in Asia, North Africa and Europe.

These birds also have a wonderful singing ability and acrobatic flights that will help us to find them even from far. Another distinctive feature of them is the tail which is of the same length as the body.
