During the breeding season, the female of this tit builds her nest from moss, shrub fibers, and hair (for lining). This nest is placed in tree hollows, cliff cracks, building cavities, or any hole they might find. She then lays 5-10 eggs in her nest (from early May through to June) and incubates them for around 16 days. She continues to feed the hatchings for 18-21 days until they are fully-fledged and leave the nest.
