Blaumeisen - Blue Tits

My computer desk looks out through a bay window onto our garden, and just outside is a willow bush that attracts a lot of birds.

Just a moment ago, a family of blue tits (in German Blaumeisen) flew into the bush. Whilst half a dozen fledglings sit expectantly on the branches, their parents are flying around looking for grubs to feed them with.

The fluffy youngsters flutter their wings like eyelashes, and in a blink of an eye a parent flies up, pops a morsel of food into wide-open mouth, and is off again.

I was not quick enough to capture the parents feeding, but here are a few shots of the hungry chicks:
