It is amazing how fast they really do empty a feeder!!!

Great picture!

Hi Shelley, That's a great picture of the Nuthatch... I love watching them come and grab the nuts in my plate feeder --when I put them out. They seem to know when to appear!!!!!! They take them one by one ---and go back and forth until they are gone!!!! SO cute...

Hope you are doing well. Are you back in school now?
Hugs,
Betsy

Such a sweet photograph. We are having tons of birds and have to refill the feeders almost every day. I do love the migration!

Daisy said...

Great picture, Shelley!

Hey Shelley - long time no see! Great photo.

Will it really take five minutes? It's amazing how quickly such little birds can clean out a feeder.

Jayne said...

Sweet! I love seeing them at my feeders.

I love Nuthatches! I love listening to them, they crack me up! They have a whole lot to say while they make their way up and down the Oaks! Great shot Shelley as always :)

When the adults started bringing the youngsters to the feeders this summer, we had a hard time keeping the feeders full. It was so much fun watching the families. Glad to see you post! I was getting worried about ya!

If you do empty it, make sure you chirp away loudly so that it gets filled to the brim again. :-) x x x

The Early Birder said...

Yeah...I can't fill the feeders up quickly enough...greedy little beggars..lol.

Eve said...

I know mine do!!!

Chris said...

Well cool that this feeder was a good investment. Concerning your loon, I cannot answer positively as I've not seen ours for months now and it looks like they did no breed successfully ...

The Retired One said...

I haven't seen any nuthatchers here...they sure are cute!!!

Great picture- I rarely see one standing like this.

Kelly said...

...hahaha! So true!!!!

Andy Wilson said...

That made me laugh!

JKoenig said...

I know what you mean. We were gone for most of the month of September, so no birdfood was set out during that time. Within a few minutes of putting some out, the nuthatches were back.

Thanks for the laugh! How very true!
