For the past few months, I’ve gotten a knock at a certain window between 8am and noon accompanied by some high pitched tweeting. Half the time I think House Buntings have entered my house (and occasionally this is true), but most of the time it’s an African Blue Tit! I think he’s lost – I never saw one last year, and I haven’t seen any others except the one who seems to be camping outside my house. He’s a bit skittish – I have tried several times to grab my camera and take a picture of him, but he always flies away before I can get the first shot. Not today, though! Today, he sat on the security bars outside my window long enough for me to take a picture! It’s not artistic – in fact, I had to zoom in quite a bit, so it may be a bit fuzzy – but isn’t he cute?
