Blue Tit, Parus caeruleus
These two little ones are the young of our pair of Blues. I am not sure if there are two or three fluffers in this family.
sorry for the bad quality of these photos, but it was hard to keep that window clean and the birds themselves are soiling it this quick that I am beginning to think they are building a smokescreen to feed in private!
The poor parent is trying to keep both her fluffers happy with bits of nut.

We have a family of Great Tit, Parus major, with 3 fledglings. I believe that they are trying for another brood as I do not see both parents that often. They share the peanutfeeder up front with their cousins the Blue Tit fluffers.

Unfortunately I have not seen any sign of Coal Tits and possible youngsters yet.
LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!
