Blue tit (Parus caeruleus) showing aggressive behaviour

Blue tit

I see a bird that's covered in blue, with green on its back and a yellow chest too... it's a blue tit!

The blue tit

  • I eat caterpillars, nuts and seeds
  • Look for me in trees, but not on the ground
  • I nest in holes in trees, including nest boxes

A blue tit gathers material for its nest, and feeds it's chicks in a nestbox.
