Great Tit

What do they look like?

The Great Tit will has a noticeable black head with big white patches on its cheeks. They have a bright yellow breast with a black band that runs downs its centre and its back and wings will be coloured with yellow-green feathers.

What do they eat?

These cheerful birds enjoy seeds, split grains and some insects. They will also use a peanut feeder and will become a common visitor to your garden.

Where do they nest?

Like its cousin the Coal Tit, the Great Tit will nest in cavities in a tree or wall but will also happily set up home in a nestbox in your garden.
