The four Oak Titmouse hatchlings should be ready to fledge in perhaps a week or so.

They can be heard "cheeping" noisily when the parents leave to bring in food.  Then, when we begin to open the box, they clam up as a defense against predators.

Here the beaks of two can be seen while the other two have tried to hunker down for safety.

Wonderful birds! Thanks for the snaps. I love hearing the little cheepers fly into the garden busily snacking in aphids and the like. They looove a light shower.

Titmice are super birds. They have nested once in my nest box and Mr. Titmouse sometimes comes to the garden table to take a peanut. Cheeky little guy!

Best of luck and life to these feathered beings. OP, You have inspired me to rehang my bird house.
