Blue Tit struggles with beak load of nesting material-video

December 3, 2013

in A selection of my garden wildlife videos, Birds, Gardening For Wildlife

What size nest entrance hole for garden birds? 

Blue Tits 25 mm    Great Tits 28 mm   House Sparrows 32 mm  Starlings 45 mm

Blue Tit struggles with beak load of nesting material

The above sizes do n’t include a bird carrying too much material in its beak though!!
