A Blue Tit spends 85% of a winter’s day looking for food. So it spends a lot of energy trying to find food.
If food is available on a bird table, a hanging feeder or on the ground the birds will have more energy to see them through the freezing night. This applies to many birds not just Blue Tits.
Lack of food can made a bird less alert and so more likely to be caught by predators, or if it does not get enough fat to last through the night it may die
Sometimes winter weather looks beautiful, but it hides the harshness of winter
