They're here!

I've been expecting to see Red-breasted Nuthatches here ever since we got back from our trip out west. I've had a couple of tantalizing glimpses and heard a call which I was certain was one of the birds. But I haven't been able to absolutely confirm the presence of the little birds in my yard. Until today.

There he is! The Red-breasted Nuthatch. They dart in and out so fast that I was lucky to get this one shot. Now that I know for sure they are here, I'll be looking for a chance for a better image. I'm just glad to know that we'll have these entertaining little guys with us this winter.

Now, where are my goldfinches and siskins?


  1. Yay! Mine is still sticking around. Where are those American Goldfinches? I'm keeping the feeder stocked. Haven't seen any hummers in a while. I'm hoping for a Rufous to over winter again.

    1. I haven't seen any hummers this week, Steph, not even my little female Rufous that had been hanging around. I think the cold front that came through this week may have pushed her on her way.
