The young are growing fast

The young Eurasian Blue Tits are growing fast, their feathers develop quickly and the birds are getting bigger, they’re starting to fill the nestbox.

In this photo one of the adults is about to enter the nestbox with another caterpillar for the young.

I count nine young in this shot so some are hidden.

A caterpillar for the young.

I noticed that there’s some form of bug crawling on the closed eye of one of the foreground birds. I’d never noticed that until writing the post. They get increasingly cheesed off as the crowding gets worse.
