Posts Tagged ‘Nuthatch’


When we first moved here to the Sierra Foothills, one of the birds of summer that I noticed was an odd little gray bird that walks down the trunks of the pine trees. Rarely do you see them going up a tree. My neighbor identified this bird to me as the Nuthatch!

These birds look for insects in the crevices of the pine bark. Can you find the bird in this photo?

These adorable birds actually “bury” seeds in the trees for later snacking! Look to see if you can find the incoming bird!

The female nuthatch is the nest builder and lays between 5-9 white to pinkish white eggs. Incubation is about 2 weeks.

Isn’t that a cool bird?

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great Wednesday and be well! ^..^
