  4. I love nuthatches. You got some great shots of them. There are quite a few that live in my yard/garden but the move so fast they are hard to photograph.

    Thanks for visiting my nature notes and to answer your question the berries are from bittersweet vines.

  5. These are adorable. The nuthatch looks at home on your deck. (I used to have birds visit my deck until the raccoons ate the birdseed.) I miss those days. I'm going to try some other birder hints to keep away the coons. BTW, LOVE your blog header!

  8. I've never seen a Brown-Headed Nuthatch....how pretty. The other two I am used to, but always very welcome visitors. Nuthatches are such clowns to watch as they go every which way.

  9. It looks fuzzy and cute. And I agree about it looking quiet and comfy. Perhaps that's one reason people watch birds?

  10. Aww, you have such sweet little birds to watch.
    Thanks for your visit. In answer to your comment:
    The other cats I saw in Tiberias a few blocks from the lake foraged in dumpsters and looked very poor and thin. This cat was healthy looking, maybe because its territory is the beach and the Promenade along the Sea, which is full of fish restaurants. Tasty scraps.

  11. Eileen, great shots. So lovely! I could sit back, relax and watch these little guys all day.

  13. Great shots!
    I have a couple of little birds visiting my hanging plants and scratching in them. I have no idea what they are or what they're doing. :)

  14. Wonderful shots. We've got a bird feeder, but I need to get a pole, the birds don't seem to want to come to the patio where I have it hanging. Could it be the scarecrow or perhaps the cat that is always sitting in the door watching them?

  23. Don't you just love to watch these little critters run up and down trees as if defying gravity!

    Nice shots Eileen and good catch with the snowy owl I take it from your post that they are uncommon this far south.

    You asked some time ago if any birds eat poke, pop over to see your proof.

    Thanks for visiting my cc post.

  26. Nice shots Eileen, good thing you know their names, cause I don't. I am learning their names one at a time.

    Thanks.

  30. I love the nuthatches. I've never seen the brown-headed nuthatch before.

  31. Those are beautiful!
    The birds don't always have to be big ones ;D

  32. Very interesting birds and a great series of photos.

    Have a great week. :)

  36. They're cute. I've never heard of Nuthatches before.

  37. I didn't realize the range of all three of these Nuthatch species overlapped. I have only seen the Brown-headed once, what a cutie and what a darling call it has! Here (northern Illinois) we only regularly have White-breasted, and Red-breasted when we are lucky.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'll trade your Brown-headed for a Pygmy. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Good to have them come so close to you.

  40. Oh boy all three nuthatches. I have white-breasted all year and the occasional red-breasted and I get so excited. Lovely post for Nature Notes... Michelle

  41. Great seeing three species of nuthatch together Eileen. That Brown-headed Nuthatch would be a lifer for me.

    I read that they are one of the few birds that have been documented using tools. Apparently, they use pine bark chips to pry off other bark chips while they forage.

  42. I have never seen a Brown-headed Nuthatch, and we just had our first Red-breasted Nuthatch here last week! Love all your photos...nuthatches are such fun little birds!

    ReplyDelete
  43. We have White breasted here - but I've never seen the other two...I would LOVE to!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
