A small tit with bright bluish-yellow plumage. Well adapted to the conditions of cultivated landscapes and often settles in gardens and parks, where it can often be found near the feeders.

Most of the diet consists of animal food, insects and their larvae. Forest pests are destroyed in large quantities, including hairy caterpillars of the gypsy moth, as well as aphids, bugs and other hemipterans. Caterpillars of leafworms and sawfly larvae are readily eaten. Also caught are flying insects (flies, wasps, lacewings), beetles, ants, harvestmen, some centipedes. In autumn and winter, seeds and other plant foods form part of the diet. Nests in hollows of trees, willingly occupies artificial nests.
A very mobile bird, it quickly flies from branch to branch and often hangs upside down, sitting on the tips of thin branches. The flight is undulating and fast, with frequent wing beats.

It does not shy away from humans and in some cases forms urban populations. However, compared to the great tit, the population density in cultivated landscapes in the blue tit is noticeably lower than in the forest – this is explained by the greater dependence of this species on the presence of old trees.

We remind you of the unfavorable winter period for plies, at this time of the year they need additional food.

ATTENTION! Spicy, salty, sweet, fried, spoiled and moldy foods, raw rice and rye bread can be detrimental to birds!
