Feeding Time @ Nest Cam!

The chicks are half asleep and huddling together for warmth
A returning parent lets out a call that lets the chicks know it's time to open wide! This send them into a frenzy of chirping, gaping and jostling for the best position

The adults have plenty of mouths to feed!
Decisions, decisions!
The adults have many mouths to feed!
The adults often seem to take their time, picking out chicks that need feeding
The adults often take their time, picking out the chicks that need feeding the most
The chicks compete with each other for their parents attention
More often than not those able to stretch highest, gape widest, chirp loudest and make their way to the front of the nest will win the prize - a juicy caterpillar!
Success!
In a flash the adult is gone to get more food
Alone again!
Take a look at the series of photos of our nesting Great Tit family taken by the nest cameras!
