N is for Nuthatches for ABC Wednesday round#9

Its always exciting for me to see a little nuthatch feeding from the feeders we have in our trees just outside our living room windows. In recent years it has been the red-breasted nuthatch that we have seen most frequently. Maybe a white-breasted Nuthatch will show up sometimes this year. There are two nuthatch species which I see and their naming relates to the colour of their breasts; the red-breasted nuthatch and the white breasted nuthatch.. In the pictures included you can probably decide which is which by observation. I have not seen any nuthatches recently. These photos are from my photo archives.

ABCWednesday is hosted by Mrs. Nesbitt. Each week a different letter is featured. It goes in alphabetical order and next week is the letter 'o'.. If you would like to contribute to ABC Wednesday , you may do so by locating the meme here:

We have more of the white than the red though the red will start showing up as soon as the cold sets in. the white-breasted are here all year.

I love these funny up-side-down birds. I always thought the white breasted are braver and that is why we more of them. Perhaps. Great Captures!
