It’s all happened today! Im not quite sure what has happened other than turf wars over my garage bird box.....it got quite nasty! After the ‘altercation’ the blue tit cleared the box of dropping. I am assuming the original blue tit has been evicted
This was the box this morning
This is my box this evening!
I do have a rooster in the this evening, but I don’t who know it is.
On a positive, I have a great tit rooster in my tree bird box, it arrived this evening for the first time
I have had a double visit this morning in my house box. This box doesn’t have any roosters (yet!) The second blue tit in could be curly toe who nested in next doors bird box in the spring. That box is no longer there as the cherry tree had a disease.
It's so good to see all the early activity. Makes the dark nights bearable Great video of the turf wars. You just want to yell 'there are plenty of boxes to go around...don't fight' don't you? I've four boxes up but only one with a rooster.
Dust if you must but wouldn't it be better To watch the birds ...........
That’s great that you have a rooster.....we will have to make little signs for the bird boxes ‘for rent’ or ‘vacancies’ so they know which ones they can move in to I have quite a lot of blue and great tits around, so I would have liked to have roosters in all of them. Fingers crossed that we can get roosters in all of them before the cold weather comes. I have wintery showers forecast tomorrow.
