[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Picture of a juvenile blue tit taken at our recent visit to RSPB Lochwinnoch. We like to go there regularly as they have a special hide near the feeders for photographers.

Info from www.garden-bird.co.uk:
"juvenile birds are duller than the adults and have greener crown, wings and tail, and yellow cheeks.

Their clutch size is the largest among nidicolous species, laying typically 10 to 12 eggs. The eggs are laid at such a time that green caterpillars will be abundant when the chicks hatch. Second clutches are rare.

The eggs are smooth and glossy, and white with purplish-red or reddish-brown spots. They are about 16 mm by 12 mm. The female incubates the eggs by herself. After the young hatch, they are fed by both parents."

PP - Cropped, straightened and sharpened and resized for TL.

Thanks for looking

Birds are never easy.. darn things won't keep still!!.. the details are ok, but I was wondering what settings you were using because the feeder is in focus more than the bird...It's good composition though.. go get some more!!!
