Newly hatched and very bemused, Bluetit chick


Newly hatched and very bemused, Bluetit chick

The nesting box is on a fence in my garden. This was the second year I have had squatters, but this year I managed to get pictures. This little chick was only hours old and I think he must have been standing on his siblings (eight of them) to manage to see out.. I managed to photograph them on the day they fledged too. Will add another picture later.

Thank you, Skillen. This was an orphan owl I encountered in Haworth in Yorkshire. I will put the photo up soon. His eyes are so sad ~ he looks like a little orphan.
