Red-Breasted Nuthatch

A new visitor has been coming to our bird feeder. Difficult to take a photo because it doesn’t stay still very long and is too far away.

The bird quickly enters the bird feeder, snags a seed, exits, and flies into the oak or pine trees.

Red-Breasted Nuthatch

We built the bird feeder out of a wire-coated basket and some scrap wood. We hoped the wire would keep out the squirrels.

Today I was able to capture a photo of the visitor, not a great one. But it was good enough that I could use it to identify the bird.
