    Brave little birdie!
    Charly, how close are you actually to the bird? Is that a windowsill or a wall?

    The last three pictures are on a windowsill. I was about 1-1,5 meter away, behind the window. On last two pictures he has actually noticed me and was for a moment trying to decide if what he sees is a threat or not.
    He has built a nest in a hollow under our roof just above that very window. And has spent whole spring and a good portion of the summer sitting on that windowsill and “ČIM-ČIM-ČIHIM” making noise. One day I snuck up on him and took pictures just after the little bugger has woken me up.
    I am going to fill in that hollow so he is forced to nest somewhere else. He has bullied the blue tits away.

    He is small but fierce.

    In US yes. Here they are native species and one that has been in decline in some areas.
