Another very welcome bird visitor in Bird Alley this morning was, a red-breasted Nuthatch. Its softlycoloured rufus, reddish belly easily makes its naming understandable. its cousin a white-breasted Nuthatch is a daily visitor.

The peanut feeder being the main attraction for both of these nuthatch species, Its always a special event when I see either of these species outside my window. its cause for me to put down my book and pick up my camera , which is always nearby.
