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.

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

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!

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.
