Blue tits nesting habits

will blue tits nest close to one another. I have 3 nest boxes in my garden but notice only one is used every summer. and other tit members nest close to one another
  • Hi eltel welcome to the community, I think it depends on just how close the boxes are, I have 3 boxes up and only one gets used by Blue Tits too.

  • Hi, Blue tits are very territorial, so there will only be one nesting pair in a territory, so if all three boxes are in the same territory, only one will be used. It's a good idea to put nest boxes as far apart as possible, to stand the best chance of them being used.
