So I looked out t at the feeder and saw a bird that I didnot recognize. It was on my tube shaped peanut feeded. It reminded me of a nuthatch the way it was feeding, but it was at least twice the size of a nuthatch. I looked at my bird book and the closest coloring to match was a worm eating warbler. But it seemed to be too big for those and not the right shape. It looked very fat or stocky like a nuthatch that had been enlarged. I know picture would help, but I was in my garage with dirty boots and the camera was in the house. Any thoughts?

I think I figured it out. I got a carpy picture and am pretty sure it's a fat Carolina Wren. Didn't know a wren would eat peanuts, but I guess anything they can find this time of year. I will try to get a worthy picture tomorrow.

I seen a bird today that also lokked and acted like a nuthatch, but I never have seen this bird untill today. it was mostly brown, its back looked just like the tree bark, tan belly. it had a small pointed beak, and it moved up the tree verticle, and kept moving up the tree, it never went sideways or upside down like a nuthatch would. I have seen many different species of birds, but never this one.

First two are of the mystery bird that is a Carolina wren. I didn't think of looking at wrens. I thought we only had house wrens and they leave in the winter. And I threw in some bonus ones that I took while waiting for the wrens to show up.full-35062-28408-1_imgp3931.jpg

Brown creepers are difficult to get a good picture of. They have great camouflage and seem to always stay in the shadows. Not sure if it is 100% true, but a nuthatch likes to be upside down and the brown creeper starts at the bottom of the tree and goes up. full-35062-28415-1_img_2027.jpg
