The Grey Tit, Parus afer is endemic to the southern parts of Namibia, the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape and Lesotho, being most common in the southwestern parts of this range where water is not too scarce. It likes shrub-rich habitats where it gleans larvae from seedpods and thorns and from under the bark of branches.


It briefly will investigate the origins of a Roberts VII Grey Tit sound byte, but does not stay interested for long.
