Nuthatches Again


I couldn’t resist trying for more photos again this morning when the nuthatches came back for breakfast.


Granola with sunflower seeds is on the menu today.


I might have to go have some of that myself.

I do make my own granola but so far I’ve been using store bought sunflower seeds. Looks like I’ll be buying them again this year unless I want to deprive the birds of their breakfast.

  5. You had already fun looking at the sunflowers, you don´t need to eat the seeds too! LOL. Thanks for the pics again, they are so cute.

  7. How interesting to see them feeding on the sunflowers! We have a different species of nuthatch here which is very much a woodland bird (although it likes birdfeeders a lot) and often eats beech nuts. It jams them into cracks in tree bark and hammers them open. While hanging upside down, naturally…

    Apparently the name comes from ‘nut hack’, which describes this behaviour.

  10. Great job with your patient photographing. I think the nuthatch actually posed for you though, right? I love nuthatches – they visit us, even though I don’t have any beautiful sunflowers like you do.
