BS: I've got 3 sorts of tits!

Subject: BS: I've got 3 sorts of tits!
From: Liz the Squeak

This morning, my great and blue tits were joined by a coal tit.

I love this time of year - the gentle defoliation means the exposure of all those crannies that were covered in the summer. The lack of leaves on the bastard service tree meant I got a clear view of the coal tit that had previously not been visible.

As for the rest of the garden....

The blackbirds have denuded my bush of berries, they're welcome to them because I need to trim it to more treelike stature before next Spring. They're going to be in trouble when it comes to househunting.... we're acquired a robin who's househunting too! He's been bouncing around the garden as if he were on springs, shouting the odds from the bay tree and daring the cats to come and have a go.... plucky little bugger he is.

This time of year the long tailed tits return in flocks too. It's fun to see how many can fit on a single peanut feeder.

We still have plenty of berries I think nature must be anticipating a hard winter in her abundance but then our blackbirds much prefer anything I grow for my own table.

Yes, I know the spade should have been in the shed but it's had an 8ft spider web on it until recently, and I didn't have the heart (or nerve) to move it.

Sadly we seem to have a bit of a shortage of birds - probably the fault of the neighbourhood cats. Ah well, moving house soon, and we'll try and rent somewhere out in the country where there's more interesting fauna than just the local variety of Chav Tit. (Which has the locating call of "KEL-LY", because the aforesaid Kelly's friends are too thick to work out complex mechanisms like doorbells...)

The tits have been busy at the feeders.. they have ignored the peanut net and the mixed grain, going straight for the black sunflower seeds hanging in the middle. Seems they're as picky as some children I know...

For georgiansilver:

Speedy Birdcake by Jane Asher

You need: Suitable container - coconut shell or clean yoghurt pot, a heatproof pan, string.

Ingredients: Beef suet or lard (you need one part of lard to two parts of any of the following. You can just use seeds but any of the other ingredients are suitable too), seeds, nuts, dried fruits - raisins, sultanas - finely chopped bacon rind.

Instructions:
1. Melt or soften the suet/lard in a pan.

2. Pour the other ingredients you are using into the suet and mix well.

3. Place the string into the container so that half of the string is in the container and half is outside. Hold the string in place and pour the mixture into the container over the string.

4. Leave the mixture to cool.

5. Once the suet has hardened, hang up your container by the string that you left hanging outside the pot or coconut.

Enjoy watching the birds eating the food. You may see tits, greenfinches and, if you are lucky, great spotted woodpeckers. Blue tits and great tits may perform acrobatics and hang upside down at times while they eat.

Don't often see a coal tit. Long tailed, great and especially blue - loads of them usualy - seem to be more common here. I haven't spotted many tits on the feeders yet.

My favourite sight lately has been a couple of Jays. I hear them in the woods often enough but I rarely see them. They have been picking up food from the drive and have got as close as about 6 feet from my bedroom window - don't think I've ever seen them that close before.

There has been a woodpecker hammering away in the wood but I've not seen it.

I meant to do my work today-
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field.
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went sighing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand-
So I said SOD WORK TODAY,
Im gonna sit here and count Tits,
Oh, I may as well open that can of beer....

We used to live between Chipping Norton and Banbury and in winter used to have a whole set of tits except for bearded and crested ones - Blue/great/coal/long tailed tits would come to the bird table and we had willow and marsh in a wild bit at the back of the garden.

Lovely things.

Microwave is good for melting lard prior to adding suet, peanuts, grain & sunflower hearts for bird cake. Can't imagine why these are so expensive in the shops, why does anyone buy them?

The bird-lawn is becoming very attractive, so much so that a juvenile peregrine falcon landed on top of the bird-table the other day. Seem an adult in the garden a few days ago too! Nature's way!

My robin is flitting around the buddliea bush now.. I think he's after the late bugs that are enjoying what must surely soon be the last of the sunshine. My tits have emptied their feeder again... I'm sure they're all addicted to black sunflower seeds.. I may have to wean them onto nuts.

The coal tit was hopping about this morning. I hadn't seen him for a few days, but they have a couple of other feeding sites on the block so I know they're all OK. The cats don't seem at all interested in chasing the tits... perhaps they don't taste nice.

Growing up in boring ol' 'New' England I would never have guessed you could call a chickadee a tit. What a missed opportuniy for myself and my young male friends.

I would like to take this opportunity to make sure that younger generations not suffer unconsciously as I did, and propose the following noun nominations:

I want you all to know I only opened this thread because I have a biological background. I thought this was a strictly scientific discussion regarding supernumary breast mammography/excision or a new evolutionary/genetic discovery countering the notion that "worthless as teats on a boar hog" was non-factual.

BTW, the number of teats on a boar hog has hereditary trait significance regarding the number and quality of teats his gilt piglets will have. (I had to add something scientific to make sure y'all believed the reason I opened this thread)

However, I should have known better to think this was a purely scientific discourse since Ms. Liz started it…

Oh, and I most certainly quit reading the remainder of the posts as soon as I learned the true premise of the thread… (clears throat)

There must be stormy weather ahead, my tits are bouncing around like nobody's business... They're all over the place, like someone has put coffee beans out for them...

The pyrocantha bush has been stripped completely by the blackbirds - nary a berry to be seen and the robin hasn't come out of his bush at all today (he's hiding in a privet bush in next door's garden).

Methinks it's time to refil the feeder and batten down a few nuthatches.

Liz, when I saw your thread about your tits, I really got interested ;-)

Strange how different languages are.

coal in German means Kohle.
So I thought the coal tit must be what's known here as Kohlmeise. But when I saw the pictures, I was confused.

So I looked it up - "Kohlmeise" is called "Great tit" in English, and "coal tit" is "Tannenmeise", "Tanne" meaning "fir" in English

"blue tit" is called "Blaumeise" ("Blau" meaning "blue"),
"crested tit" is called "Haubenmeise" ("Haube" meaning "hood"),
"sombre tit" is called "Trauermeise" ("Trauer" meaning "mourning"),
"long-tailed tit" is called "Schwanzmeise" ("Schwanz" meaning "tail")

(All the mentioned "Meisen" = "tits" I've seen from my balcony.

Robins, which are quite common in UK are quite rare here ...

The great tit and the coal tit are easily confused, which is why I checked my bird book.

Great tits are like blue tits but with black heads. Coal tits are like great tits but with brown bodies, not green and yellow.

Also, the great tit is bigger than the coal tit. (My book says 14cm vs. 11cm [5.5in vs. 4.3in] beak-tip to tail-end). Blue tit is about the same size as coal tit.

I don't think it's fair to refer to Manitas like that... I really meant the chimney! Our bed is against the blocked off chimney breast, so we really do sleep like logs - with our heads in the grate! Trouble is, it just acts like a great big jug when the wind blows over the top at angle...

I moved my bird bath and bird feeder from the back yard this fall, because the dogs weren't leaving them alone. Now outside my kitchen window on the side of the house, I have a wonderful perpetual motion display inhabited by any number of small finch-sized birds. Various hues are present, and they scoot in and out of my Silvarado sage and a couple of other evergreen plants (they particularly love a big rosemary out there). If the feeder goes empty I seem to have a high number of pert little faces peering through the window screen alerting me to the problem. It seems that they have been watching me watching them.

My neighbor was complaining this weekend that he hasn't seen many birds this fall, and then he discovered the small flock that hovers around my house. I have an extra shepherd's crook garden thing to give him and plan to find him an inexpensive bird feeder (it's a great time of year to buy them on sale) so he can lure a few back across the street.

In honor of this thread, Liz, today I visited the local establishment with everything BIRDS. Houses, perches, books, and of course, seed. I picked up some premium bird seed for the various small birds, a mix that comes without a couple of the fillers that usually occupy a lot of space in commercial bags of seed but that don't do birds any good. And I picked up a mesh sack and a bag of thistle seed. Oddest stuff to spoon into the bag. The static electricity around the plastic and with the dry air gave it a life of its own.

I'll watch eagerly to see how long it takes some of the finches and cardinals to discover the need seed and that extra seed hanger!

Hey young lady, that was 2 posts after LH's "tit wit" and you know the type of people opening this sort of thread my not be as "bright" or "like-minded" enough to catch the drift (that does not include me, you, or LH of course!).

As far as big B-Bush versus little b-bush, I am fond enough of the real feminine Bush to think it deserves capitalization! (in fact BUSH!)

Now Liz, back to you. Why in the world would you start a thread like this enticing (forcing) decent folk like me and one or two others here to post 'thangs' that they would not have otherwise posted?

Oh, you retort, this thread really was only about titmice, the small insect-eating passerine birds of the family Paridae, and absolutely nothing else. Sure, that was your intent and any double-entendres were merely accidental or subject only to the "mind-in-the-gutter" perceptions of some Mudcatters.

Now, I have a biological background and my post here was solely to point out the salacious content of this thread and my attempt to return it to the purely scientific and ornithological endeavor that it should have been initially.   

Liz the Streak, er I mean Squeak, you are an 'evil thread' temptress (but obviously a very popular one at that, can you believe 140 plus post so far).

Ah.. that could explain a lot. I've not heard my tits sing.. it must be because I'm expecting the languid trilling they did when I lived in Dorset. Obviously with city life, my tits have speeded up to make themselves noticed.

Coal tits are no good at lighting fires because when they hold the matches in their little claws, because they're upside down, the flames burn their bums and they drop the match. The trick is to put your fire under the tits perch and they'll drop the lit match onto it.

Either that or you have damp tits.

Now Ms. Squeak (mice also squeak as vocalization) I peruse this thread ONLY as an attempt to add pertinent biological information to help keep this thread in a somewhat scientific vein.

Most female mice have 3.3333333333333333333333333333333333333… more tits than you. Their number is 10. Male mice do not usually have   nipples/

BTW, did you ever wonder why male horses do not have teats? Think about it. There simple is no anatomical space for them. The area is taken up by something else (usually 2 of them, of course unless they have been gelded and they still won't have them…I know Mudcatters. Some smart-alecky type would say something about that if I did not state a clarification).

Returning to this thread's relevancy:

Giok said: "With knobs on!"

That kind of titmouse would be a tufted titmouse, a correct ornithological appellation.

Who can tell us the mammalian species with the largest number of teats? (I don't want to give all the titillating information)

Now, please carry-on with your tits

I have tried to plant shrubs that provide a sheltered and protective environment, but this summer's ban on hoses has meant they went without sustenance and consequently I've lost several of them. Their departure has left some bare nekkid patches which I'm hoping will be covered in the spring. The pittisporum and the butterfly bush have thrived though, as has the bay.

I am, however, having to consider trimming my bush down to fence height because it's just so unruly and starting to be a nuisance to the neighbours. Trouble is, the tits love it because it still gives good cover and it'll be ripe enough to eat the seeds soon.

Have you considered waxing your BUSH? Please be careful because if you use hot wax and your tits should flit in it they could be injured; your tits will definitely Squeak! with pain.

Hot BUSH wax betwixt feathers and tits don't mix.   

Just one of those eternal truths in the Life of Birds.

BTW, of clinical significance, I have tried waxed BUSH and the unruly, nuisance variety you mention. My preference is definitely the former although the latter can be much riper, so better for your tits.

Lizzy,

What you have here is of bunch of men who are Bird Dogs (Men who steal another man's girlfriends (chicks) or dates; Remember the Everly Bros. song?)

Therefore, and as any bird hunter knows, Bird Dogs are known best for beating the BUSHES in search of game. Even though your tits are not considered small game animals and are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act there are those bird dogs that are always searching for bird chicks like your tits.

So, teach your tits to not respond to any bird calls used by game bird hunters. The sound of the call will be similar the the Squeak of your tits when they vocalize with each other.

It would be devastating to see your tits shot down in their prime. Tit birdwatching would never be the same fun you mentioned having, without you and other Mudcatters watching your particular tits.

Liz, I'm surprised you find us hard to "get over"; we're avid bird watchers and your tits aren't the only ones we've been on about. I'm no twitcher, although I've seen lots of sights that had me twitching.

Wandering albatross cresting Southern Ocean rollers are a sight to make anyone twitch; occasionally a wing feather will ruffle into the airflow over the wing; beautiful! I've even held a Wilson's Storm Petrel in the palm of my hand, although Great Petrels lumbering over the ice with too much seal carrion aboard tend to be a bit offputting. I've listened to lyrebirds imitate chainsaws, focal plane shutters of cameras, dogs barking and multitudes of other birds. I've never heard the one that imitated the flautist practising Mozart, nor seen the visual display but it still made me twitch a bit. I've seen great flocks of galahs (even imitated one occasionally) and pelicans where they nest; wonderful.

So I hope I've come across as one who's paid proper respect for your tits and their behaviour. I wouldn't wish to be misinterpreted about them.

Cheers, Rowan

Ah Rowan, I know what you mean... a walk in my native habitat not so long ago, gave me the sight of a family group of buzzards, just wheeling along, enjoying the updraughts coming off the hill. They barely flapped, yet achieved amazing altitudes and spiralled off out over the plain (or west Dorset as we call it) and vanished into the bluest sky I've ever seen in the northern hemisphere. Truly a stunning sight.

It's probably a survival issue and depends on the seeds locally available. If your tits don't recognise a seed, they like as not won't eat it. They also learn to recognise the feeder. The one I have at the moment is bright yellow and they'll eat out of it. I swapped it for a red one and they won't touch it, even though it was full of the same seeds and hanging in the same place.

Birds are clever creatures, but sometimes we are amused when we do things that seem to confuse them (not on purpose of course!)

The other day we moved a feeder that has a cakes of fat in it (we got it from the RSPB) from one place to another, as I put up a bird nesting box which would have been too close to it.

A couple of starlings that had got used to feeding from it, kept coming back to where it was, and looking around puzzled, wondering where it had gone. I hope they managed to find it eventually, but I didn't hang around long enough to find out.

Speaking of tits, I noticed we have what appears to be a mad blue-tit in our garden. It exhibits strange but entertaining behaviour. We have a climbing rose plant that goes along the wall above our back window, and there's a piece of string hanging down where we tied it up to a wire. This bird likes to swing from this 'rope', then onto a nearby twig, back on the rope, etc., then it goes across to the next window and sits on the windowsill, tapping the glass with its beak as if it wants to come in. It does other odd things too (at least, I've never seen one do these things before). It's very amusing to watch.

I just wondered if anyone else has seen a bird behaving like this, or seen any other odd behaviour from birds?

A chaffinch appeared fleetingly yesterday! He's a lovely rosy pink and grey but I suspect he's just passing through on the way to one of the parks, to find a mate.

See your tits have found support yet again Liz. If the finch is rosy pink he could well be a Bullfinch rather than chaffinch.....lovely birds the finches...I also love to see pied wagtails around at this time with their tails bobbing up and down....favourite bird however is the Lapwing with its clever aerobatics.

Talking of aerobatics, we once - and only once, sadly - saw a flycatcher in our garden (a spotted flycatcher, IIRC). We were sitting out the back one evening and saw this small brown bird (unremarkable in appearance) doing these amazing aerobatic stunts and then landing on the fence. Then off it would go again. Not having seen one before (or since!) we didn't know what it was at first, but then we realised it was catching insects and worked it out.

The male chaffinch in the breeding season develops a very rosy chest in deed, it is is quite likely that Liz is correct. They are the most common bird in our garden in the winter, when we sometimes get as many as 50/60 at a time feeding on and around our bird tables.

Bullfinches have a black rather than grey head, so it sounds from the description as if it's more likely to be a chaffinch.

My turn to take an interest in Liz's tits....

A good start to the day at Dobro Towers: great, blue and long-tailed (puddeny-pokes in this neck of the woods) all waiting for the starlings to finish at the suet balls.

Serious question: where an overflow pipe was removed from the house, there's a small hole halfway up the wall. I've seen blue tits flying up to it and going in, but so far, I haven't seen one coming out. Do you experts know if a blue tit can turn round in such a confined space, or is there an ever-mounting heap of late, deceased, bereft of life blue tits inside the cavity wall? I 'd like to block the hole up to avoid this rather worrying possibility, but would hate to think I'd done so while there's one or two still inside.

If you wait till the summer you'll probably be safe to do it, but any bereft tits in your cavity (ooerr, missus!) will be difficult to remove. Good idea to block it up anyway, in case you get bees or wasps nesting in there.

Rusty,
from south of the equator I'm not sure of the exact timing of the breeding season of your tits so my suggestion might have to wait until any nestlings have flown. A bit of smoke blown into the hole will cause most birds/rodents/etc to vacate the premises rapidly, if they can do so. A bit of burning rubber smoke increases the effect while still staying humane. Deserted eggs won't smell much but you might still want to wait until after the season. The smoke can be blown along a length of tube so that it doesn't represent a barrier between where they are and the exit.

Cheers, Rowan

Yesterday morning I had two fairly large pigeons trying to land in my butterfly bush... they flapped off rapidly after discovering that their combined weight pushed the branch down just far enough to be within reach of the coiled, furry black spring that was the Raven pussy, just waiting for the perfect breakfast.

They'd been too busy courting to notice him before... He can be a sneaky little pussy when he wants. He's decided that it is his reason d'etre to catch, kill and eat one of the racing pigeons that regularly fly over the house. He'll sit in the front window with his little black nose squashed up to the glass, his back end twitching like a very twitchy thing and make the oddest collection of noises that I suppose in cat language mean something like 'I've got some fava beans and a nice chianti all ready for you'...

On the other hand, I'm thinkin' that the third one would throw some people a little off... It could be a problem.

What I would suggest is...pick out the one among the three that is least...um..."desirable" I guess would be the word...and get it surgically removed. Pick a real good sawbones so the operation don't leave a scar.

Tbey've been active again recently... the coal tits fledged about 3 weeks ago and I'm pretty sure they're onto their second brood. The blue tit is looking less frazzled so I suspect his brood have also flown the nest and he's just replenishing his energy now that the coal tits have left the fat pecker. They still feed there but not so frenetically so the Blue has a chance to stock up before being harangued from the bay tree. They actually pecked him off when they were feeding young. Haven't seen the great tits for a while, I think they've found another feeder down the road.

Meanwhile, the neighbours over the fence have uprooted several shrubs that were along our fence, so there is a distinct lack of cover there now... so our feathered friends may find nest sites a little lacking next spring. I've no intention of trimming any more of my trees and bushes, so they're always welcome on my side of the fence.

Only in American could we have something called the "Bushtit," I kid you not!

Check it out: clickety. Here's the info on it, from This Guy's Newsletter:


"Crowd" doesn't sound right for a gathering of birds
but it's the best one I can think of to describe a
bunch of foraging Bushtits. Nearly always Bushtits are
seen drifting across the landscape in hyperactive,
profoundly social groups of a dozen or more birds,
foraging for spiders and small insects. The word
"flock" is inadequate for evoking their nervous
energy. "Swarm" almost gets it but that word implies a
larger number. "Mob" implies a threat but there's
nothing threatening about these teeny, plain-looking
little birds so easily identified by their very long
tails and very short beaks. Even with such lengthy
tails the birds reach only 3½-inches long (9 cm), so
they're much smaller than a chickadee. As they fly
about orbiting one another they softly, plaintively
keep in touch calling a high, thin, fussing tsit-tsit-
tsit...

Bushtits are the only North American member of their
family, the Long-tailed Tit Family, or Aegithalidae,
the other twelve members of the family being Eurasian.
Our Bushtits are also the only species in their genus
Psaltriparus.

Bushtits are found in open woodlands, scrubby areas
and even suburban shrubbery, from Vancouver, British
Columbia south through much of the western US to
Guatemala.

Yet another example of different cultures having different connotations to the one word.

In Oz, "mob" doesn't usually carry the sense of threat implied in Kat's piece, especially away from cities. It's the collective noun for a bunch of macropods, particularly kangaroos, and older bush-bred Aborigines are likely to use it for any number (of anything) that is greater than 5. A much larger number of things in one or more groups is likely to be described as "big mobs", even by Balandas in the Top End.

Personally, I reckon I'd like to see Liz' tits in big mobs.
