Marsh Tit Poecile palustris

Observer

Date

Description

Behavior of Poecile palustris - eating and hiding sunflower seeds.
I fill my birdfeeder with raw sunflower seeds. After eating some, the Marsh tit will start stocking them up for later. It will visit various places around our garden trying to find a suitable hiding place. After it flies away I visit the hiding place to photograph it.
It is quite hesitant when hiding seeds contrary to the occasions when it's going to eat it - then it flies straight to some branch and immediately begins opening the seed.
The captured hiding places are - under a metal element and inside the stem of a trimmed garden rose.

A mixed flock of about 100 birds on a bush - Passer domesticus and P.montanus. The sparrows constantly roost on this bush - it provides protection (it's very dense) and there's plenty of food on the street because of the grocery stores nearby.
