I love these Nuthatches because they like to cling to the side of trees. You'll often find them walking along a tree upside down. They routinely are walking down the side of trees. They seem to like pointing down while they eat or while doing pretty much anything else too.
I've been wondering how busy my feeder will be when the weather gets warm. Right now I get several birds several times a day. They usually come to the feeder more in bad weather. Maybe when there's more food elsewhere they won't have a use for my feeder. I hope they still like to come. I'll talk to you later.

How do I know she's a female Woodpecker? It's a similar thing to the Cardinals. It's the color. the male is a bit more colorful than the female bird. Right on the back of the head a male Downy Woodpecker has a bright red spot. This female here doesn't have that.
I also have to explain the story of the bell feeders. I may have done that already but I'll do it again. In this post I'm on my second feeder. Squirrels carried the other away and chewed at it, but I retrieved it soon after. The birds ate it down some more. But then the dog knocked it down under the porch so I couldn't get it. Now I'm on my second one.
This second feeder has an even more interesting story to tell in future posts. I'll try to get to them as fast as I can, but I can only go so fast. I've been posting more than I have in a few years now. It's been kind of fun trying to keep going and keep up this rate. It takes me back to when I had a new post every day. This is the most I can do for now though. I'll talk to you later, probably with more birds.
