Acrobatic Blue Tits

The young Blue Tits are still around (4 in total) and late yesterday evening they showed off their acrobatic skills as they hunted for the fat feeder that we had taken down to clean!

This one found the seed feder but was more interested in looking elsewhere.

  2. Great captures Frank, and they all look so puzzled lol
    They really are great little acrobats, the way they can cling on to almost anything, and any position.
    Hope you get the fat feeder back up soon for them.

  3. Oh my goodness, what an adorable face on this little bird. I have never seen this bird before..what a charmer!! Isn't it neat that they come to where the feeder use to hang...like my hummers who flitted around the spot where the feeders should be..b/c I was late getting the spring feeders out...I felt so guilty....having to have the birds remind me to put out their feeder!!
    Neat Post EB. Great shots!!

  5. Frank...these little guys are adorable! I love how he's clinging upside down in the first photo, but it's the tiny little bill and cute face that seals the deal for me!

  6. Lovely shots Frank. It always amazes me how the Blue Tits manage to cling on - especially as the one is doing in your first picture. :)

  7. Excellent Frank.
    Four is good! Are they all acrobats? Or only some of them!! I guess they were frustrated not to find the feeders!
    Well done my friend, these are great pictures!

  9. Delightful shots
    I love to see them on the feeders and get frustrated that the Great Tits can't play nicely with them
    There is enough food for all but the GT's are bullies and greedy toward them

  11. John. Thanks, not too shabby for shooting thro' the double glazing!

    Keith. Tonight they were doing the splits but I wasn't quick enough!

    Tina. Yes, very cute & obviously have good memories. We generally leave feeders out all year but just reduce the no's & volume of food when there is plenty of their natural food available.

    Lynne & Crista & Kelly. Just as cute as your Chickadees?

    Kelly & Tricia. The more they feed, the heavier they get & later in the day they rarely hang upside down; much like us..eh!

    Chris. Broods can initially be 10 -15 when natural food is plentiful. I think the local Magpies will have been responsible for some losses so 4 is ok.

    Jan. Definitely a puzzled stare but glad they keep coming back.

    Prof Yaffle. Thanks for joining the "Early Birders". GT v BT, well that's life.

    Warren. Let's hope plenty of them survive even if it costs us...it's worth it just for the entertainment.

  12. Frank, all of these captures are fabulous, but the very last one stole my heart. What a precious little bird.
