Red Breasted Nuthatch


    We have several families of nuthatch visiting our feeders. It is quite difficult to get good pictures of them. They tend to be hyper-active! Just when you have them in focus and are ready to trip the shutter, they move. It took us about 3 weeks to get these pictures and some could have been better. They are not bad, just could have been better. I think they plan on staying around for a while. We have seen them get a seed from the bells or feeder and then hide it. We didn't know that they would hide food. We thought ravens were the only birds to hide excess food.
    While watching the nuthatches today we had some red shafted flickers come in to the birdbath and drink their fill. Hopefully it will be the whole family of flickers that has returned. If they stay around for a while we may  get some more good pictures of them and update the Flicker webpage.
    For now, enjoy the nuthatch pictures.

I'm learning how to do videos so please be patient while I learn how to do this new feature. We are also learning how to do the videos for use on our website. This may be a good excuse to consider getting an actual movie camera!
