The youngest chick is clearly not ready for leaving the nest yet... How is it in Great Tits usually, do the parents keep feeding the asynchronous ones that remain in the nest after the
majority has left the nest or do the youngest remain in the nest and starve?

Welcome to the forum, torte gelato! :hi:
So far only the biggest one, chick#1 is getting ready for leaving the nest, and chick#2 jumps around and flapping the wings, the rest of them still have to grow. And there is s 1 week difference between the biggest one and the smallest one, so the smallest one has a week to catch up. Yes, parents will be feeding chicks outside and chicks inside too.
9:35 TBO is at the opening, looking around, getting more andmore comfortable over there
9:36 a delivery, parent leaves, TBO looks really big :innocent:
Image
9:37 and gets to the opening
Image
9:39 everybody is busy with something
