COAL TIT (Parus ater)

Coal Tit by Sandra Palme s

Perhaps slightly smaller than a blue tit, this strikingly coloured little bird uses the same small nest box. Less common than the blue tit around houses, they are found more often near coniferous trees. They are regular users of our bird feeders.
If you have COAL TITS present around your garden, then they may well suffer competition from the blue tits in respect of who gets the nest box. So put up a second smaller nest box for the COAL TIT because the blue tit will not permit another blue tit on “his” territory but will allow the COAL TIT!
