Nuthatches

 



White Breasted 



 Red Breasted

 

We saw our first nuthatches a couple of years ago. At first I had no idea what those cute little guys were that sort of looked like a chickadee but looked like they were hanging almost upside down on the wire that my fuchsias where hung with. As with the two pictures above that look like I have placed them wrong, that is how the way the little characters hang on to feed. They are real lively and are very cautious. They don't stay at the feeder very long, they would grab a seed and take off to the fence or the fur trees to eat then come back for more. The nuthatches in our yard were not residents of our our habitat. They flew in from another area to eat and then left. I didn't see them last year or yet this year. I really miss the little clowns.
