Eggs and Nest
This could be my last post about our Blue Tits nesting on our balcony – but never say never…
Larry from The Birders’s Report suggested in a comment to one of my posts to clean out the nest box and maybe the Blue Tits will have a second brood. So I lifted the mossy nest out of the box and what a surprise there was still an egg inside – maybe not fertilized or just not properly developed, who knows. (Thanks Larry!)
The egg of the Blue Tit is 1.5 cm (little more than half an inch) long. This is so tiny, it’s hard to think of a bird coming out of it. The House Sparrow’s egg I found close by is about 2cm (almost an inch).
