Is it just me or does that bird look angry?

This is one of 15 million blue tits in the UK and average life expectancy is 1.5 years.

Zoe, I got the info on life expectancy from Wikipedia so can`t say why.

Hi Zoe,

I do know that the Blue Tit, and possibly the Great Tit, are usual food for the Sparrowhawk.
