(Similar to a song of a puff) or chirping "psi-du, psi-du.", "Psiti-du, psiti-du. "(like a great tit song, but the timbre is clearly different). Full-fledged spring singing of gray-headed chicks, apparently, is not typical at all.

The hollows of other tits and woodpeckers, including the great spotted woodpecker, are sometimes used. The aperture diameter is usually small, from 30 to 50 mm. The depth of the hole is 100-200 mm. The brooding period lasts about 2 weeks.
