Bluetit Diary    May 2019 (3)



Friday 3rd May, 2019

Andy has brought food for Ann. 

At the end of the day, you can see that all Ann's eggs are in one piece 

In Box2 you can see here that although the chicks are at rest, you can count 11 beaks.  Well done Bella and Ben!

You may also have noticed that all the chicks have suddenly taken on a blackish tinge.  That is  down that covers the chicks bodies after a few days.

One of the parents (Ben?) is shown here with food for the chicks.  He is waiting to collect the fecal sac that is often produced after a feed.
