Does It Taste Better Upside Down?

A new cheap peanut feeder has given the Blue Tits a chance to show off their agility.  Unlike my other feeders which have solid bases this one continues the mesh underneath.

Not brilliant photos as they were taken at high ISO on a very dull morning but I couldn't resist the antics of this juvenile Blue Tit:

It makes sense to attack the bottom peanuts as the weight of those above help to keep them in place while the bird pecks at one.

Video to follow on Friday.


  1. I am missing my feeders but don't like to use them unless the birds have cover near by. I find birds and feeders an endless source of entertainment.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
