The day was brighter but still breezy yesterday. I partially refilled the bird feeder as I am very low on seed. The smaller birds did not mind the quarter-filled feeder at all. I saw a few House Finches, a Tufted Titmouse and a pair of the nuthatches. This series of pictures today is on one of the White-breasted Nuthatches that came to the bird feeder in the afternoon. They are intelligent and interesting little birds.
The White-breasted Nuthatches are nearly woodpecker-like in looks and behavior. Perhaps that is why I like them so much. As you probably know, I am really crazy for the woodpeckers. So a pair of White-breasted Nuthatches does well as a substitute to watch when the woodpeckers fail to show up! I took these pictures on November 8, 2012 in my yard.
