Yesterday the male came with food, too big :slap: for the chicks to swallow. He tried to pull the part out but it didn't work. The little chick was raised in the air, finally the male left the box :shock: . At this point I already thought the chick would suffocate but luckily it could choke the part out.




Fortunately, this pair of Great Tits can also be distinguished from above. The transition from black to white on the neck is different

The male comes with a bug and tries to feed it ... it doesn't work really. Suddenly one chick want give him poop and for short the male does not know what to do :whistling: . He jumps into the window and gives a call. My human thoughts, he calls for the female to help :rotf:
The male jumps back to the chicks, stuffed it into a chick's beak, took care of the poop and flies off.
