They surely are!! I held one in my hand yesterday and could feel it's heart beating. It had flown through the window, and needed help to fly outside.

Good morning Joke:)
I also love this little bird, but it is terribly shy, and only stays a second at the feeders.I was lucky to capture this one, and so pleased you like it:)

These wooden seed boxes are in several places around the garden, and the Tit family make good use of them.
Have a nice day:)

Hello Linda:)
Blue Tits are indeed pretty little birds,.. so pleased you like this one.

See you!

ShySongbird said...

A lovely photo Sonjia! It is such a pretty little bird. They visit my garden every day and love the sunflower hearts I put out for them.

We were threatened with more snow today but luckily it is just rain so far. The pretty garden birds such as this one brighten even the dullest of days...I assume you don't have too many of those though :-)...Sending hugs!

marijke said...

A fantastic photo of my favorit bird. It's a beauty.
Have a wonderful sunday.

Breathtaking said...

ShySongbird
Thank you Jan! Lovely to see you:)
Yes, the birds and flowers do brighten dull days. I feed the birds before having breakfast, so I can watch them at the feeders.

I sympathize with you about the bad weather you are getting, but we too have had our share. It has rained continuously for weeks now, with just the occasional sunny spell.It does make one yearn for spring!
Hugs right back to you:)

marijke

Agree, the blue tit is a nice little fellow!

Breathtaking said...

Hello Linda:)
I think you will know them as chickadees in the North America, but please let me know if I am incorrect.

Stuart Price
I know I would miss it to, if we didn't see it here.

Hello Becca! Thank you for your very nice comment.

You make lovely crochet work. I have two beautiful white crochet table cloths, made by my mother in law, and they are always admired.

It's not something I have ever wanted to do as a hobby, but I most certainly admire yours.

Lovely photos of Lucy:)

Thank you dear!
My Valentine's Day started really well with flowers, chocolates, and
a dinner date for this evening.

Hope your Valentine's day is romantic and fun!!!

ShySongbird said...

Hi Sonjia, Just to let you know that the post which shows on my sidebar (a Treecreeper I think) says it doesn't exist on reaching your blog!! I realise you may have withdrawn it but thought it worth mentioning :-)

Happy Valentine's Day :-)
