Fussy Little Red-Breasted Nuthatch

by Sandy
(N.Y.)


I was surprised last week when this little Nuthatch jumped right in my hand when I offered it some seeds. He picked through and took a peanut. A few days latter I offered it some black oil sunflower seeds, he jumped in my hand and picked through the seeds, didn't take anything but then flew at my face. I went in the house and brought out a seed mix that had peanuts, and he few right in my hand got a peanut and flew away. Now I have been buying peanuts for him and feed him by hand almost every day!

So neat to feed bird out of your hand and let him/her pick the peanut out. Great picture.

Can't believe my sister is lucky to have that nuthatch take peanuts from her hand. Maybe I can find one of his relatives in my backyard!
