White-breasted Nuthatch

White-breasted NuthatchThe Nuthatches have been busy at the feeders and it’s fun to watch them gather their seeds and then fly off and hide them in the nooks and cranies of the tree limbs. I’ve had both Red-breasted and this White-breasted Nuthatch’s grabbing bird seed. They must think they have to store their food still, but not for long…..the weather is finally becoming more Spring like, thankfully. Yesterday was a sure sign of that with having sat out on the patio and observed 24 different species in 2 hours along with 5 FOY (first of year) birds. It was a good day with more to come! Happy birding everyone!!

    Beautiful….I have never seen one before. We are getting wrens and willy wagtails now that it is autumn here.

      Thanks so much. I’ve been seeing quite a few pairs of these nuthatches recently.
