Today the Blue tits have changed their minds on the green bird box and are really interested in the blue one!

“Hey Kirsty…..Come and look at this one, it’s a great colour!”

“Phil! I thought we’d chosen the green one, it’ll be the same lay-out you know.”

“Maybe….but check out this view!”

“Nice neighbours too”

“Budge up let’s have a look….wow! They say location is everything…………..and the blue matches your eyes…:o)))”

It would be difficult to choose between those very desirable homes , it's great that you can see their comings and goings Janey ..... lovely photos , I love to see them peeping out of the hole at the front of the box ....:o))

Love these pics. Janey....You will let us know when they have finally
decided?... LOL

23 Mar, 2010

 

The only trouble is there are no walls for Kirsty to pull down!!!! smashing photos Janey, we had one going in and out of our box today, he/she was in there for ages, too far to photo, not enough time to change the lens, will keep watching and hoping, good luck with yours.......

23 Mar, 2010

 

Ha..ha....thanks for the great comments! Kirsty may like to keep the green one in mind for her"own space" after the babies are hatched...Lol!

After I took these pics..I noticed little blobs of white on his beak and leaves. Under the roof was polystyrene insulation which he looks like he's been pecking.
I think Ian will have to go in and take it out...I don't want them to choke., only hope they're not disturbed too much....:o(

They are pretty aren't they. Great photos Janey :o)

Lovely pictures Janey I think I would be dithering over which to choose such lovely bright colours. I have a cherry tree in front of my window with a bird box which has never been used since it was put up 3years ago. But Im so excited as for the last couple of weeks a pair of Blue Tits have been viewing it, the other morning a right comotion as a pair of Great Tits were also viewing and trying to chase the Blue Tits away, so will have to see who if any finally nest in it!

24 Mar, 2010

 

Some very nice dwellings there Janey, It's nice when they decide to come and live with you.

24 Mar, 2010

Wonderful photos! Please tell your blue tit friends if they have any friends that need a home I have 2 bird boxes going cheep! lol Ours have been in the garden about 4 yrs now and no tenants! Im thinking of putting a for sale sign up!!

26 Mar, 2010

 

I did read somewhere, ages ago, that the house has to face the right direction Great, unfortunately, I can't remember what the direction was, so I'm a big help. Maybe Janey knows???

27 Mar, 2010

 

Thanks Great.......I'll whisper in their ears, they could come to you for Winter...:o) Yes you're right Ba, I think they have to face North...so that the babies keep cool out of the sun when they hatch.....which way are yours facing Great?

27 Mar, 2010

 

Maybe also that when the fledge the sun isn't in their eyes, there could be predators about.

27 Mar, 2010

 

That's true Ron......they'll need all their wits about them........

27 Mar, 2010

 

Great blog janey, must say they look happy in their new home, do you have a camera in there to record what happens inside the box ?

28 Mar, 2010

 

Couldn't tell you Im hopeless at directions!

29 Mar, 2010
