First Flight…

DSC00414And here it is, the very first flight of the baby Bluetits!

As you can see, one of the parents is feeding the nestlings.

I was lucky to get this shot as the birds are so very fast!


This is the first one to put it’s head out of the box.


The parents will feed their young almost round the clock!

Blue Tits feed mostly on insects, especially caterpillars, and seeds.

Through this feeding, pattern the birds are of great assistance to the gardener in her attempt at natural pest control.DSC00413
