Hi Neville,

Thank you for your good comments !

The bird in the first recording is a Blue Tit (M=E9sange bleue in French
-- Parus caeruleus). Tits (Blue Tit, Great Tit, Crested Tit...) have
become very common in the region. I would not be surprised if they were
now more numerous than the House Sparrows. Last May, I had the
opportunity to observe Blue Tits coming in and out of a nest located in
a small cavity of the building I work in. Once, I was able to observe
them through the window at less than 30 cm !=20

are related, but they certainly look very similar. There must be some

On the other recordings,there were also Wrens (Troglodytes troglodytes),
one of the smallest birds in Belgium with its 8 to 13 grams ! Some Great

Hi Dominique;

You created a lovely pastural scene. I grew up in England  so the sounds
are quite nastalgic. Could you confirm the bird in the first recording
as a Blue Tit?  I'm sorry I don't know the french name.If I am correct ,
the Tit family, and the North American Chickadees are closely related.
The behavior and chatter of the Black-capped Chickadee often reminds me
of the Blue Tit. Thank you John Neville
