The Blue Tit

£50.00 Add to basket


Sporting a mix of blue, yellow, white, green and black, the Blue Tit is unmistakable. It is thriving well in a world dominated by humans, taking advantage of our propensity to feed birds and provide nest-boxes. In turn, this charismatic species provides an excellent model for research, and currently features in around 100 scientific papers annually. This new Poyser is the result of a personal quest by author Martyn Stenning to bring these discoveries together in one accessible volume. The text initially invites readers into the intimate life of breeding Blue Tits and describes how nature has shaped their destiny. Moving on to the diversification and classification of Blue Tit variation across their range, the story progresses into population structure, life-time ecology and mortality, culminating in an exploration of factors that determine breeding success. The Blue Tit concludes with a genial selection of anecdotes, folklore and poetry.
