Long-tailed tits

Long-tailed Tits are infrequent visitors to our feeders, but when they come, they tend to come mob-handed and block out all the other birds. I don't mind, they are beautiful birds.



Ignore the Chaffinch at the water!

WOW! Look at the tails on those birds! They really are VERY long!
Very uniquely colored, as well! Looks like they are being fairly peaceable with the Chaffinch!

Do you make the round "treats" for the birds? I used to make up some goodies, and I completely forgot about it until I saw those round ball-shaped treats.

They are indeed beautiful. The only visitor to my courtyard that I see is a greedy grey squirrel that digs up the bulbs in my pots!

Thanks for the hot toddy by the way - much appreciated! (*sniff*)
