The New Kids On The Block, Part II







I don't usually see Red-Breasted Nuthatch's in my yard.
If you have never seen one, they have a dark crown, white face,
black eye stripe and rust colored breast.
 
Nuthatches are the only birds that can climb headfirst
down tree trunks.

This species is seen mostly in winter...
he started visiting me this past winter and comes most days!!

I do get White-Breasted Nuthatch's, all year round!!

  3. I have both the red-breasted and White-breasted ones but am kind of partial to the red ones. They are just so cute.

  4. Debbie, I think it is rare to see the Red-Breasted Nuthatch in the summer. A real nice yard bird too. Great shots!

  10. Oh, I LOVE those birds!! I like how they peep-peep up and down the tree trunk!! I don't have them in my yard because I don't have large trees, but I watch for them wherever I go. GREAT shots!

  12. Wonderful shots, Debbie! I see a white-breasted Nuthatch here all the time, but I don't think I've see one of these. He's very handsome!

  14. So beautiful, and so interesting that they climb down trees! You've had me on the lookout for different birds in my own backyard lately, I must get a bird feeder!

  16. These photos are so awesome. I think this bird has all my favorite colors. I have caught the bug of taking photo's of birds from you.
    Right now we have a sweet little Mourning Dove that has a nest in our tree. Her two little babies just hatched about 2 days ago. We have some great pictures I will post soon.
    Blessings!
