Schwanzmeisen - Long-tailed Tits on the Bird Feeder

Looking out of the window, I am delighted to see a pair of long-tailed tits (Aegithalos caudatus) on the bird feeder.

In Germany, they are known as Schwanzmeisen. 'Schwanz' means 'tail', but it does have some vulgar connotations too!

They start pairing up February to March, so here's wishing them a happy courtship!
