Betancuria = Fuertaventura. Taxon degener zit daar en die hoort bij de Noord-Afrikaanse  ultramarinus.

@moderators, graag de naam veranderen naar Maghrebpimpelmees.

Hi.

Not all the ornithologists agree with the inclusion of degener in utramarinus. In fact, in the Biota project of the Canarian Government we maintain degener as a valid subspecies of Cyanistes teneriffae, endemic to Fuerteventura and Lanzarote islands; see:

Best regards.

Hi Rubén, in The Netherlands we follow for WP  taxa the Dutch Commitee for Avian Systematics (CSNA), where the blue tit complex includes 7 species. Degener is here together with ultramarinus a species.

For taxa outside the WP we follow the IOC, where the blue tit includes 2 species (Blue and African, including taxa of Canaries and North-Africa).

Hi again, Eduard.

Many thanks for your explanation about the Tits.

Best regards from the Canaries.
