Yesterday two of the Great Tits eggs hatched which kept both parents busy finding small enough food for such tiny beaks. I was able to capture some of the activity on the DVR which gives a clearer picture than the streaming video: One time both parent birds arrived with food and they seemed to stare at each other wondering what to do next as ma had food in her beak and pa usually hands over his food for her to give to the babies. Notice how both adults carefully keep to the edge of the nest so as not to stand on the youngsters.
Live streaming video HERE. It takes a few seconds to appear.
It looks as though five of the eggs have hatched now - two more to go.
