Blue tits

We have a feeder for birds in the garden and enjoy watching various garden birds feed as you get to see them a lot closer. Tonight I was checking a fence post and leaning over where the feeder was to see the back of the wooden post and realised my head was 9 inches away from a Blue tit feeding, it didnt budge and kept feeding, what a beautiful sight it was so close up.
I then slowly backed off and left it to continue.
It made my night. I just thought I would mention this as there is so much beauty in out own backyards that we just take for granted.

Re: Blue tits

Really made me feel so relaxed reading your post. I can spend hours watching birds, well any wildlife really Juco. My first job every morning is to go and replenish the feeders in our garden, we have a pair of Great Tits nesting in our bird box, they are so busy in and out feeding whilst sitting on their eggs. Love all the Tits family. We also put monkey nuts out for the squirrel who visits our garden, but the Jackdaws love them, and again to watch them take them high upon the roof and crack them open, just so much simple pleasure. Mr and Mrs Blackbird are also nesting in our dense fir trees, and they love the apples I put out for them, spend a good half an hour wandering around each morning sorting them all out, then sit and watch them from our Kitchen window, just so relaxing.

Had a pair of these gorgeous creatures on the complex yesterday. First time I've seen them in Turkey. I thought somebody's parrot had escaped at first. Noisy buggers though.

We have Great Tits nesting in all the earthenware amphorae in the gardens.

Re: Blue tits

We get Rollers in Kaya, even the twitchers come with camera's to see them one year.

Beautiful birds, also the little bee-eaters and lots and lots of Jay's.

Can anyone tell me why the villagers seemed to make it a sport to try shooting the bee-eaters, apart from the obvious, that they ate the bee's and bee's make honey. I've seen kids of 10ish before with air guns taking pot shots at the birds, and stray dogs in Kaya.

Because 'the obvious' isn't that obvious Ceni. 'Bee Eaters' will eat bees but not in any numbers that would have an impact on the bee industry.
