Blue Tits - Growing up.

The juvenile Blue Tits are actively feeding every day as evidenced by the reduced size of the fat block and as time goes by their drab colours will become brighter.

Always keeping a wary eye out for possible danger.
Even the young ones can do the leg splits, just like the adults.
This is what the youngsters will look like as they get older.

  3. Cracking set Frank. They really are beautiful little fluffy balls at that age. And so yellow underneath.
    Got to be one of the most popular garden visitors along with the Robin.

  5. Very cute little guys. My suet block has been popular lately too. Later I will be posting some photos similar to yours, but featuring a Red-breasted Nuthatch...he is also good at the suet cage.

  6. Your young visitors are lovely; it's interesting how grey they are until they get their adult plumage.

    Nice shots!

  8. Beautiful aren't they?
    Shame the Great Tits can't play nicely, as they are always bullying them from the feeders in my garden, despite there being more food then they could possibly eat

  9. Very sweet little birds. They remind me of chickadees, just with different colors!

  11. Oh Frank your Blue Tit pictures are so nice. Do you use photoshop to create your collage? I don't have photoshop because my computer is too old to handle another program...but was wondering. :)

    Have a wonderful day

  12. Hi "Early Birders", I'm glad your'e not bored with Blue Tits as there are very few other visitors in the garden at the moment.

    Richard. The last shot gives an indication of the change from drab grey to blues & yellows. If you search in the sidebar there are some shots of adults earlier this year.

    NW Nature Nut. I'll look out for the Red-breasted Nuthatch.

    Crista. I use a free programme called "Picasa 3", downloaded from Google. It's worth a try & very simple to use.

    If I didn't mention you by name please accept my thanks for continuing to comment. Have a good week. Cheers FAB.

  14. Great photos of those little fellows. I hope you photograph them again later as they begin to get their adult plumage - and post the shots here of course.

  15. They are sweeties. I can tell they are getting bigger. They are losing those "baby" faces. Great series.

  16. oldcrow61. Similar genus. Paridae family.

    Mick. I'll do my best to keep an eye on their progress providing they stay around long enough.

    Kelly. I agree, they are absolutely charming.

    Bhavesh. Thanks for dropping by.
