( Parus caeruleus )

Blue tit - Blue tit information - Blue tit facts



The Blue tit is spread all around Europe apart from northern parts of Scandinavia. It is also present in north-western parts of Africa. It inhabits wooded areas, parks and gardens, where it finds enough of food supplies. They feed on small invertebrates, seeds, nuts, aphids that is welcomed particularly by gardeners. They are often found hoping in the trees, and their small size enables them to hang upside down.
They are 12 cm (5 inches) in size. They are rather tiny. Their head is quite small with blue crown, white cheeks and black stripe going through each eye. The chest and belly are yellow, back is greenish-blue ad wings are blue with a white stripe going across each wing. The legs are black. All this makes their plumage very vivid. Sexes are alike, however the females are duller.
Their nest is usually placed in the tree holes. They have got from 7 to 16 eggs that are white with reddish-brown markings. The young tend to leave the nest even they are unable to fly, which is a huge drawback for them. Because it makes them an easy prey for predators such as cats.
