One Nutty Guy!

Recommended Posts

My suet feeder I hung at the state park, is starting to pay off. I found this nuthatch, 3 chickadees and 1 downy, visiting it this morning. I'm still hoping for the larger woodpeckers to find it. The only drawback is, I have to go back and refill it. It's large enough to hold 4 suet blocks, although I make my own, so it does last longer. I believe this block lasted close to 1 1/2 weeks.

Nice shot, I don't have any good WB nuthatch shots. I have a pair that visit my feeders, but it seems like they only come when I am inside.

Thanks, guys. Actually MM, I had to create my little piece of heaven. wink I hear red bellies every time I'm out there and I understand there are a couple pileateds in the park too. I just have to be patient and spend more time out there. I did come across a small flock of robins out there this morning. They're a little early. At least it's only 18 miles round trip.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger.
