The White-breasted Nuthatch is a regular visitor in my backyard. It is rare for me to walk outside and fail to see one of these birds hopping about, all decked out in his tux and tails.
Curious, and not the least bit shy, these Nuthatches never seem perturbed by my presence; on the contrary, they actually seem to enjoy the attention. Perhaps that’s because they recognize the hand that feeds them!
Really though – how can you help but smile when you see such a friendly, handsome face?
If an award were given to the best dressed bird in the whole backyard, this fellow would surely win!
