More birds in my backyard

Surprising that by just moving the bird feeder away from the walls, more birds are now visiting my little backyard. This morning two great tits visited my garden. I’m surprised that great tit is actually bigger in size than a robin, as I always thought the opposite is the case. After spending some time observing the great tits eating the wild birds seed did I found out why robins are not interested in the wild bird seeds I put out. It seems that it really does take some effort out of the great tits to break open or to eat the seeds. No wonder Robin, which certainly seem to have a weaker beak, very much prefers yellow cheese or worms instead.
