Balcony Blue Tits- 03.13.11

babiesasleepday2-2.jpg We’re so in love with and inspired by nature here at NOTCOT ~ Here’s another peek into the world of our resident zoologist and editor, Justine! So amazing and adorable to see how these little birds come to be! Oooh and you can follow her on twitter now ~ @NotCritters… say hi!

With spring on its way, it’s time to get ready for the bounty to come. Here are some photos of the adorable blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) family that made their home in a nestbox on my office balcony last summer. Take a peek at their growth from eggs to fluffy teenagers on the next page!

To find out more about birding in Britain, check out the RSPB and The Wildlife Trusts.

These baby birds look like the inspiration behind the look of the Simpsons’ characters!
