This Morning Outside

It's been years since I've seen this species in my backyard. 

But good morning! How I split my face chuckling to see this shrimp of a bird zipping around in the redbud tree. With the speed stripe through his eye, and his tangerine-sherbet belly. I watched him pull this morsel out from under the bark of the tree. Probably an insect larva.

Red-breasted Nuthatch is the easiest of all birds win over. And then they'll land on an open palm for treats. Please stay for the winter! I promise a goodly supply of walnut chunks.

If you feel inspired to share with our readers about nuthatches that you have hand tamed, please email me.
