The Blue Tit is a samll bird! But is a beautiful bird when painted!




I painted tis little fellow on Saturday with the Georgia Peach Painters.


The Blue Tit is a widespread European Chickadee, one of the most common and best-loved garden birds of England. They are noted for their confident and fearless nature, and willingly use nest boxes and come to feeders. Highly intelligent, the Blue Tits have been used in scientific studies, demonstrating that they can complete a precise and complex sequence of more than 25 tasks to get the reward--a sunflower seed--at the end!
