Zorro, the Blue Tit : Ferney-Voltaire, FR

We have a birdfeeder hanging on a pole on our outside terrace. A number of small birds can often be seen winging over for some seed. Most of them are average brown warblers. Lately, though, we've had a beautiful little blue tit (yes, that's what it's called) who comes and eats from our feeder and bathes in our ad hoc bath. He's a cute little guy with a band across his eyes, so we've named him Zorro. Now we just have to keep the neighborhood cats Martha, George, Stubby, Janus, and Chaos away! To see a couple more pictures of Zorro, go here.

Great pictures of a lovely little bird. I used to see them all the time when I lived in England.
