Coal Tits

These guys came in very young and underweight after being found in someones garden. We advised the guys to wait a while and see if mum

returned, but sadly she didn't. They soon started eating and grew incredibly quickly. They have such lovely characters and are amazing birds to be able to watch in the garden.

When they were old enough to start feeding themselves, we tried to wean them off being hand fed. They were moved from an incubator to a larger glass vivarium which we kept near a window. TWhen we felt they were ready, we created a bridge out of many large branches to allow them to come in and out the viv into a large bush situated outside the window.

One very quickly hopped out onto the branch and sat outside in the sun; the other two were a little slow and reluctant to move from safety and stayed put. We did this for 2 days, taking them in at night. After a while of watching their sibling outside, they slowly began to move towards the branches and fly the nest themselves.

OUTCOME:

These three are now outside completely, with a successful release and three new additions to our local bird population it is a great outcome. They were a joy to have in the rescue and really did have lovely little characters; they will be missed.
