The Bearded Reedling, Panurus biarmicus, is a peculiar small passerine
bird. It is also frequently known as the Bearded Tit due to some similarities to
Long-tailed Tits, or Bearded Parrotbill since it was later placed with these
after it was removed from the true tits in the family Paridae. But according to
more recent research, it is actually a unique songbird - no other living species
seems to be particularly closely related to it. Thus, it seems that the
monotypic family Panuridae must again be recognized. Clip from
