They're Back


Red-breasted Nuthatch
 
Every October, I keep a close watch on my feeders for these little birds.
It's always a thrill to see them when they arrive.

  1. What a great photo! And a little darling of a bird. I have never seen any of these around here, just his cousin the white breasted nuthatch.

  20. The Red breasted Nut Hatches do migrate while our little white breasted Nut Hatches stay all winter. A few years back I had a little Red Breasted Nut Hatch spend the winter at my feeder. He clearly was having a hard time with the very cold weather so I started putting meal worms out for him ... he made it to Spring and then was off. What a funny little character he was. Great pictures, Karen.

  26. A lovely capture Karen. You need to be quick with the moment of the peanut in the bird's bill and you clearly were.

  32. Wonderful little bird and a great picture. I really like these birds that help us mark the turning of the year.

    I think that much of the wildlife around Halls Gap is rather used to having people about - so they don't run away as fast!
