On reading the prompt for One Word Sunday: Speciality I had a couple of ideas for a post.
In the end I went with a specially designed nestbox and electronic flash that allowed me to document the nesting cycle of various bird species that use nestboxes. This meant that I could observe and record some interesting behaviour.
In this photo one of the adult Eurasian Blue Tits, I’d say that it’s the female, brings in some moss for the nest. The way the nest is being built shows that one adult has a preference for moss while the other has a preference for dry grass.
In this photo the male is feeding the female during incubation. Observation showed that the male always stood on the right side of the nest when feeding the female and the young when they were small.
