Blue Tit Aerobics


Watching this Blue Tit brightened up a very dull morning. I am lucky enough to see a breeding pair of these throughout the day as they visit the Silver Birch trees at the bottom of our garden.

Oh you are so lucky to be able to watch them each day. Great pic.

The first thing I did was take a double look, Tom. At first I took this to be one of our goldfinches which is totally yellow except for some black here and there.

Also, about the iPads. I have seen them and have imagined myself using one for this kind of thing. Blogging. But the keyboard is so small or smaller than normal and I might have problems typing on it. Have you been able to try one out. I haven't been out of the house in so long, except for today, that I don't know what i am missing at the computer store.

Regards to Jane and the family.

The Blue Tits are just lovely Tom.

Thanks for your comment, my first thought too was a long tailed Tit but, as far as I know, and I have checked all the lists of imported birds, it was never introduced to Australia and in the 60 years I have lived here, I have never come across one before. May be it is a portend as the Tits are my favourite small birds and this summer past, I heard a Nightingale sing in our park. Again, I have only known them to exist 700km further north in Melbourne. I wonder what God is telling me???

Wonderful series, Tom. I feel like I'm watching this blue tit as it exercises.

Cool shots Tom.
It hasn't been until this summer and I guess me being off my feet for three weeks with a bad knee and a computer virus for two has helped but, sitting in my sunroom watching the birds has been a real pleasure and a look into their world I had never experienced before. How they behave has been interesting. I wish I had the patience to video it all.
I'm glad you saw my turkeys. That old Tom has been a delight to watch. And, I don't think for one minute he's better looking than you. :)
Say hi to Jane.
