Bird Facts

The Blue Tit

Blue-tit-smallThe Blue Tit is arguably one of the most attractive and comical visitors to our gardens with its colourful mix of blue, yellow, green and white making it instantly recognisable. In winter, family flocks join up with other Tits as they search for food. A garden with four or five Blue Tits at a feeder at any one time may be feeding 20 or more.

Blue Tits are delightful to watch in our gardens with their mischievous antics. Providing a Bird Pod-d nesting box, is a wonderful way to safeguard their numbers.

The Coal Tit

Coal-tit-LargeThe Coal Tit, with its distinctive grey back and black cap, is smaller than the Blue Tit and has a slender bill, meaning it can feed successfully in conifers. Like the Blue Tit, it is a regular visitor to most garden feeders, they will take and store food for eating later. And in the winter, family flocks will join up with other Tits in their search for food. Providing a Bird Pod-d nesting box, is the perfect way to enjoy the comings and goings of these beautiful creatures.

Site your Bird Pod-d

Carefully site your Bird Pod-d. Place it out of the prevailing south westerly wind and away from direct sunlight. This will prevent chicks from over-heating. It’s also best to site your Bird Pod-d away from a feeder as too much activity will disturb their nesting. Your pod includes a FREE fitting bracket.
