Carla, you're welcome!
Yesterday for short time it was in color, hope it comes back today. Every day the Starlings several times try to get into the box, luckily (for the Tits) no chance this year.

How can I get in?

Grrr, I just don't fit through

According to what we learnt a couple of years ago when great tit was Estonian bird of the year, and what Wikipedia says about breeding time, they try to get the eggs as synchronised as possible. Breedig time can be between 10 and 17 days, so counted from the last egg, I think from today we can start hatch watch.

Carla, IceAge :hi:

Clip from 19:50
The Great Tit was outside and a Starling was at the window. I thought the female wouldn't come back while the Starling was there ... nope ... hissing, she flew into the box :slap:
Slow motion is with sound (the hissing is to hear before the starling flew off)
