Blue Tit Update.

The parents are still busily feeding their young in the nest box where the tiny chirping sounds are becoming more vocal each day. 
These were all shot late this evening after the sun disappeared behind the houses. Had to pump up the ISO in order to get a decent speed to capture the action (hand held this time) hence the grainy images. Interesting to note the increase in contact and warning calls when other species were close by, especially an inquisitive Magpie and a hungry Parakeet try to get to the feeder above my head.  The adults are certainly showing increased signs of wear and tear!    FAB.

  1. The photos still turned out good! I have seen a male Lazuli Bunting twice, but no photos of him yet. He's spooky.

  3. How fun and exciting to observe! What a beautiful bird, too. Our 4 baby House Finch chicks are peeping loudly, also! It is so cute.

  4. It's heartwarming to see a parent bird's tireless labor. We have a house wren in a nestbox attached to our house - can't get anywhere near that side of the house without causing excited angry chatter.

  6. Mona. Lazuli sounds very exotic!

    Steve B. Still going strong today.

    Cindyzlogic. Hope your youngsters make it.

    Hilke. The Blue Tit adults were very vocal today...chasing off a Great Tit! We hear & see a Wren occasionally but not nested in the garden so far. Good luck with yours.

    Shelley. I think they are small caterpillars. I'll do my best to keep you updated.
