Just another WordPress.com weblog about Nature and Wildlife

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.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. sweet little guys. they’ll take whatever you give them, i’m sure!

    • Hi Theresa, Yes, they like the cheap seed I now buy. Beggars cannot be choosers! Now I sure hope the European Starlings don’t start coming to the feeder. I just saw a new group here. Have a nice Saturday tomorrow and thanks for your always great comments!

  2. I really like these dears. We saw a bunch at the park today, but also have them at home. We believe it is a female who comes to our feeders. Oh, I hope the starlings move on. They can really eat up the food.

    • Hi Birding Bunch, Glad you have nuthatches. They are wonderful little birds – very amusing and “Chatty”. Have the best weekend and thanks for your insightful and interesting comments.

  3. I love the in-flight shots! We have had cold weather move in and most of the birds have stayed away, probably staying in the thick brush out of the snow, but a few chickadees and some nuthatches did come for sunflower seeds. I love to see them too!

  4. I love the cute Nuthatches, great shots of them at your feeders. I am seeing both the White-breasted and the Red-breasted Nuthatches and they are so much fun watching.
