The parrotbills are a small family of Old World passerine birds, Paradoxornithidae (or Panuridae in some systems). They are related to the Old World babblers, but in general appearance and behaviour are more like the tits. The bills of these birds are short, heavy and laterally compressed, like a parrot's, hence the English name.

These are mostly birds of tropical southeast Asia, although the Bearded Tit is a bird of reedbeds in temperate Eurasia.

These are birds of open habitats, reedbeds and bamboo stands. This group is not strongly migratory, although the Bearded Tit can be eruptive.

The species are:
