Sparrows are finches and have a strong beak to break up seeds whereas tits have a fine beak and have to peck bits off a big bit of food to break it up. So sparrows can sit in place with their flock on lookout while they munch food. Tits need to go off and find a branch to hold the seed still while they peck at it. Tits will also cache food for later which sparrows don't really do so the tits might have a better long term strategy when the feeders run out and they've still got a food supply.

I always think they smell like those dried shrimps you get in Chinese supermarkets.
