The Coal Tit


The tiny, energetic little coal tit is the tiniest member of the tit relatives. Even though regularly found in parks and gardens, coal tits are usually timid and are consequently not seen lingering at bird tables as much as blue tits and great tits. Rather, they prefer to dart in, snap up a seed from a feeder or table and carry it back to the protection of a tree or shrub to nibble on at leisure, prior to returning for more. Coal tits eat insects, beech mast, seeds and nuts. Their preferred foods that  they take from garden bird tables and bird feeders are black sunflower seeds, sunflower hearts and suet.
In the wintertime they get together with other tits to create flocks which roam through woodlands as well as gardens

reach food from bird feeders, bird tables or the underside of branches.The coal tit possesses an olive grey back with a greyish buff under body, a black cap, large white cheek patches in addition to a white patch on the back of its neck. On each wing there  is a thin white stripe and its legs are a blue grey colour. The relatives of the coal tit are generally more colourful, while the willow and marsh tits are very similar but they do not have the white patch on the neck, that identifies the coal tit.
The coal tit will make good use of a nesting box. The nest it builds usually has a moss foundation with animal hair or feather padding and is built by both the male and female birds.
