Just loved the body language and expression of indignation of the Coal Tit (Periparus ater), when the Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus) brazenly hopped in front of him at the queue for the feeder. Bet the air was blue in avian language!!!! These little birds certainly have attitude.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterdays upload - very much appreciated, as always Smile

Beautiful shot Sylvia. So nice to see these wee birds living in harmony. A lesson for us all in this perhaps.

I like the interaction between the two protaganists, it looks like the coal tit is going to give bluey a piece of his mind!
