Here you can watch a short film about three blue tits chicks leaving the nest and there of one getting fed by its parents at my window.

Three Blue Tit Chicks on the Loose (short film)

The events depicted in the short video below took place over the course of six hours on May 25, 2014. For a full account of these events and some background, you can read From Nestling to Fledgling. For best viewing quality, select HD (1080p) and enlarge video.Regrettably, I was unable to get a proper video of the precious fledging moments even though it occured three times before my marvelled eyes. This is due to my camera’s technical limitations and because I had to save my battery life for the whole event: it was impossible for me to keep the camera running until the hesistant chicks made up their mind―which took a very long time!
