STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH

39 Comments

I hadn’t been to our local reserve in a while so I was particularly happy to see this Red-breasted nuthatch close to the entrance. A bit smaller than the white-breasted variety and not as numerous in our woods, this little guy was very active, flying and landing briefly in the surrounding trees. A nice start to our walk.

  1. I saw a nuthatch for the first time in my life a few weeks ago. There were three of them at Sherwood Forest. Such a wonderful sight. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love that photo. We rarely have this little visitor at our feeder in New Hampshire. When we do, it’s a great day.

  10. Oh, he’s so sweet! It makes me think of how it feels to have them curl their toes around my finger when I was feeding them in the bird sanctuary ( some time ago now, but unforgettable).

  14. What striking colours – the facial features are vaguely similar to our Cape Robin-chat.
