Scientific name

Lainey

When you add an ID, like 'Great Tit', click on 'Get recommended' and iSpot will automatically fill in the scientific name for you. The scientific names are important in differentiating between species whose common names are sometimes identical. For example, 'Redshank' can be a plant and a bird...but they have totally different scientific names.

Your Great Tit is a male, with a broad black stripe between the legs (females have a far narrower and duller black stripe).
