Jest śliczny i na pewno nigdy nie będzie głodny. Ma tyle jedzenia. Pozdrawiam.
It is pretty and certainly will never be hungry. He has so much food. Yours.

Very nice colour and pin sharp on the eyes.a very good image.

They certainly are charming Sonjia and your photo is delightful. I see them in my garden too and like all of the tit family they are always on the move, grabbing a piece of food and flying off at speed. They must use a lot of energy!

cute little guy

Linda said...

He's a cute fellow! Looks like you feed him well.

I help them a little,but they have a quota, and when it's finished they must wait until the next day before I fill the feeders again.

Believe me the peanuts don't last long as all the Tit family come for meals!!
Cheers.

Pomagam im trochę, ale posiada kwoty, a gdy skończył muszą czekać do następnego dnia, zanim wypełnią podajniki ponownie.

Uwierz mi, że orzeszki nie trwają długo, jak cała rodzina Tit zjada na posiłki!
Cheers.

Please let me know if this translation is Ok:)

Thank you Shaun for your very generous comment.

This photo of the Coal Tit on the peanut feeder is real cool.

Thank you Jan! Yes, they must use tons of energy,so I don't feel bad about giving them a little extra
food, and watching them at the feeders is such a joy.

Breathtaking said...

Bob Bushell
Thank you Bob:) I could watch these lovely little birds for hours.

Thank you Vitor, they are delightful little birds to watch.

I must confess that hanging peanut feeders outside is as much for my enjoyment as it is for the birds, as they bring so much energy and colour to the garden.

Thank you for your visit.

Breathtaking said...

Adam
Yes, I agree! Thank you for stopping by.

Breathtaking said...

Linda
Hi Linda:)
Yes indeed, a cute fellow! I love this little bird.

We half fill the feeders every evening, so that all the Tits get an early meal at breakfast.

Breathtaking said...

Joke
Thank you Joke:) I was pleased with this shot myself,when the Coal Tit stayed still just for a second, and my luck was in!!!

Nice to see you here Julie:) Thank you for your visit and I'm so pleased you like this shot.

My daughter chose my header from a photo she already had in her possession, and for sentimental reasons I've kept it, but will probably change it next year.

susan said...

it cerrtainly is a charmer, andd looks cheeky as well.

Breathtaking said...

Susan
They are full of character, very quick movers, agile, but also intrepid. I can get a little nearer to them than the other Tits.

S. Etole said...

What a cute little bird. Reminds me somewhat of our chickadees.

Breathtaking said...

S. Etole
It is almost identical to the Black Capped Chickadee which is also a Tit.They are lovely little birds.
Thank you for passing by, and for your comment.

Have a nice Sunday:)

Sweet said...

This pic is just delightful! I've just put some seeds on my bird houses but never thought about potatoes (is it potatoes?).
Anyway, beautiful!!!
Greetings

Breathtaking said...

Sweet
I feed the birds peanuts,like the ones in the photo, seeds, and one part bread, and two part cake mix, which they really enjoy. I buy the cake especially for the birds.
So pleased you like the photo, thank you for your visit.

Breathtaking said...

Sweet
I forgot to say that I do sometimes leave out scraps of Sweet Potatoes for the birds.

Rohrerbot said...

I really like the Tit family. So many beautiful birds in this group....this one is a new one for me. Thanks for sharing. We have 3 similiar birds over here....the Bushtit, Bridled Titmouse, and one other ....but it's on the Eastern side of the US. All really nice birds.

Breathtaking said...

Rohrerbot
I couldn't agree more! They are such pretty little birds, and I get to see so many of them, but unfortunately not the two you mentioned.I have to go to your blog to see those:)
