Blue Tit – Birds of Britain

Blue tits are the acrobats of the garden. Hang out a string of nuts or strips of bacon rind and you will probably see these little birds suspended, balancing agilely to reach the food. They can even learn to pull out matchbox drawers to obtain food inside, and regularly pierce the foil caps on milk bottles to get at the milk. Blue tits need this ingenuity to survive. Although one pair might lay as many as 13 eggs in one clutch, only one adult and one young bird will, on average, live to breed the following year.
