News from the Blue Tit’s nest

Five days ago we were able to see the little ones for the first time. They were coming closer to the opening so we saw them. The day before it was raining for the first time in a very long time and the parents were all wet. We thought that this might be the reason that they are not going into the nest anymore and are feeding from the outside.

I counted three little beaks – only two in the photo:

As you can see in the photos above, the wood of the nest front started bending and I got worried about it falling off. That’s why I taped it. Maybe not the strongest thing but it worked till today. The birds were kind of scared at their first arrival after the taping, but luckily they got used to it.

Today the birds have obviously grown and I think that they will leave the nest any day now – hopefully when I’m around!

I think those little ones just look like little clowns. What do you think?
