Whitebreasted Nuthatches

These critters are all over my feeder all the time. I have finally learned to live with them - sort of.

On this video the Nuthatches are the stars- Right after the squirrel segment at the beginning, there is a pair of them for just a moment with their tail feathers flaired out, chattering to each other. They are so cute. There are also quite a few Tufted Titmice, a couple Wrens and a Cardinal.

Click the squirrel on the nose to see the video.

I laughed out loud at the squirrel! It's great to be able to really WATCH the Nuthatches. They are first of all hard to find in my neck of the woods (Austin, TX) and then if they are found, they are hard to watch for long.
Your videos are a great tool for learning about the birds. Pete Dunn said that in order to learn the birds, "watch the birds" by which he meant really watch them for more time than it takes to ID one. Your videos are a great tool - thanks for taking the time to post them.
