Remezovye are small, tit-like birds ranging in length from 7.5 to 11 cm. Compared to titmice, they have thinner, smaller beaks. They also have short, rounded wings and short tails.


Remezaceae are common in Eurasia, Africa and North America. While the genus Remiz distributed from Portugal and northern Morocco to Japan, the largest genus is Anthoscopus inhabits sub-Saharan Africa to South Africa. Monotypic genus Auriparus lives in Mexico and the southwestern United States.

Eurasian species are mostly migratory birds, African and American species are sedentary birds.

Most species prefer open landscapes with separately growing trees and bushes, a few species live in deserts, marshes or forests.


Most of the food is insects, as well as fruits, seeds and nectar. The hunting behavior is very similar to the hunting behavior of real tits.

Many species build artistic, hanging nests from cobwebs, animal hair, and soft plant parts such as willow and poplar seeds. Genus nests Anthoscopus more complex than the Eurasian genus Remiz, they have a false entrance above the present, which leads to an empty chamber. This entrance is closed by a valve.
