BIRDS of GARDENS and HILLS.
The Blue Tit.
The Blue Tit is as common in Giverny as its Great Tit cousin.
It is a small acrobatic ball of nerves which clings to the branches
in all the positions to catch its food.
Its colours are splendid with the sun. In winter, it follows also a hypercaloric diet made of insects eggs, larvae, and of course, fat content which you put in your garden.
In spring, before going up towards the hills,
one might also see it on the apple trees in flowers of the “Clos Morin”.
(Museum of American Art of Giverny) where it seems to appreciate nectar.
