It turns out that blue tits are just like us: picky about their living quarters. Taken with a camera mounted in a box near the town of Loughborough in the UK a highlight reel follows one of the birds as she arranges her roost with the utmost care. Although female blue tits tend to build their nests Over the course of a week or two alone, this particular creature spends nearly seven weeks perfecting theirs. We see how she first picks the walls of the future house, removes her first grass for new material and constantly adapts her growing quarter. Shortly after she finishes building, she lays her first egg in the top left corner.

There is a whole Youtube channel Dedicated to the new family and you can watch the chicks hatch and leave the nest. (above PetaPixel)
