White-breasted Nuthatch

Its always interesting to check out the birds in our feeder area this time of year for there are often returning species present that we have not seen since the winter or spring. I was very happy to see a White-breasted Nuthatch at one of our peanut feeders on Tuesday, Oct. 17th. These little upside down feeding birds are always a delight to watch; hopefully we shall also have a visit from a Red-breasted Nuthatch soon.
This is also the time of year when I start making a list each day of the different species that I have seen in our yard and feeder area.
