Blue Tit Eggs Hatch Out

Old Bird Box 

Last week I noticed that the bird box had a blue tit nesting in it with 10 blue tit eggs inside.

Blue Tit Eggs In Nest

Today when the family and I were playing football with my 3 year old nephew, we saw alot of movement around the nest box. I carefully climbed onto a chair and peered through the hole to see very, very tiny beaks.

The eggs have obviously hatched and the parents are feeding the chicks. Both parents could be seen flying backwards and forwards to the nest. It was very exciting.

I’m afraid I did not get a photograph as I didn’t want to disturb the blue tits and make them abandon their young. If the parents did abandon the chicks then the young would most certainly die as the chicks appeared to be newly hatched.

We didn’t stay long in the garden as we didn’t want to disturb the birds any more so we went to the paddock to fly my nephews kite which was great fun.
