Nuthatch residence

9 posts in this topic

I got out this warm ,sunny spring morning(knowing it's going to turn gray and colder the next couple days) and on the walk this morning spotted a couple of redbreasted nuthatchs setting up residence in an old standing dried out popple....kind of neat to watch these birds chipping away at there new homestead! grin...He'd "pick" awhile,then get rid of the "pickings"!...neat to watch! grin

Jonny - very cool shots. I have similar pictures of a pileated getting a nest ready. Nice shot of the grouse also.

What a busy little guy. I still haven't got a good image of that style of nuthatch. Then again, they are quite rare around here.

Excellent behavioral images of the nuthatch. I really like number two.
