We have some new babies.
Not the babies your strictly thinking about, although they do make about as much noise and want feeding just as much. We have baby birds living in our house, literally in our house
A mommy blue tit decided that the air vent at the side of our house was the perfect home for her little babies. So she nested and out hatched 6 little beauty's.
I'm am in love with them! They tweet all the time and you can watch as the parents go in and out taking them food all day long. They are 6 very hungry birds.
I've managed to sneak a few pics and a video while the mommy wasn't looking because I don't want to scare her or them.
We live opposite a big open field, so she has lots of insects to catch and bring them back for them but I've brought some meal worms today for them and are going to leave them in my garden so she doesn't have to keep flying over the main road as much to fetch them food, my dad said that's the biggest killer of the blue tits because they fly so low, they get knocked down. (I no some wildlife experts will get mad at this because there meant to be wild and catch there own food, but we feed the wild birds all year long in our garden, so they always have a constant supply to help them along the way)
I think I'll be really sad when they fatten up and fly the nest, I'm sort of worried about them already, will they all be able to fly OK? I feel like there surrogate mommy! But maybe one of them will be back next year with there own family's.
I can't wait until Harry's old enough to understand about the wild life and plants in our garden!
Do you have any wildlife in your garden?
