Parus elegans

The Elegant Tit is a species of bird in the tit family Paridae. The species was formerly included in the much larger genus Parus, and some authorities have suggested that along with the closely related Palawan Tit and Yellow-bellied Tit it should be placed in a new genus, Pardaliparus. The species has nine recognised subspecies, one of which, the race P. e. panayensis from Panay, is potentially a separate species. It is endemic to the Philippines, ranging across most of the islands.

The Parus elegans is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
