This bird is called the black-throated bushtit, and no, we’re not making it up. Also known as the black-throated tit, the beautiful fellow is only about 10.5 centimeters (4 inches) small and 4-9 grams (0.14-0.317 ounces) light.

Taiwanese wildlife photographer Chen Chengguang, who specializes in bird photography, has captured these birdies in ways that really do them justice. The fluffy and colored plumage is so clear in Chengguang’s images, you can’t help but imagine what it would be like to pet these adorable critters.

The black-throated bushtit has a considerable racial variation in the plumage, but all subspecies have a medium length tail (as opposed to the long tail of the related long-tailed tit), a black throat and a black ‘bandit mask’ around the eye.

The bird’s habitat ranges from the foothills of the Himalayas, stretching across northern India through north-eastern Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, northern Myanmar, Vietnam, and Taiwan. Disjunct populations also have been spotted in southern Vietnam, the island of Hainan and further north in China up to the Yellow River.
