The Palawan Tit is a species of bird in the tit family Paridae. It is endemic to Palawan and the smaller islands of Calauit and Balabac in the Philippines. Within its range it is found in lowland forest habitats, including secondary forests, forest edge, swamps as well as submontane forest. It feeds on small insects, insect larvae, seeds, and fruit. It generally occurs singly or in pairs, and will join mixed-species feeding flocks.

The Parus amabilis is classified as Near Threatened (NT), is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.
