The trinity has been making frequent appearances in my backyard lately.
Now clearly I’m not talking about the capital “T” version – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost – although they too are regulars at my house!
No, I’m talking about the tiny trio of Nuthatches that have been hanging about, stopping by to enjoy the fresh water.
I’ve posted about the Brown-headed Nuthatch before – a daring, delightful little bird that has a special place in my heart.
And I’ve posted about the White-breasted Nuthatch on a number of occasions – a curious and comical fellow that makes me smile every time he drops in.
But I’ve never posted about the Red-breasted Nuthatch until now…simply because this is the first time I’ve ever had one show up in my backyard!
When you look at his features, you can definitely see the family resemblance.
I’m not sure how long this newcomer will stick around, but for now, I’ll enjoy having this tiny trinity all here together.

Love your little Nuthatches Kathy! They are adorable little birds I do agree.
Great captures of these sweet little birds! The white breasted is the only one we see here in northeast Ohio.
I am thrilled that the red-breasted variety has shown up. Always nice to get a new visitor. 🙂
lovely little birds and great photos.
All wonderful shots! How nice to see the brown headed version, not one that comes our way.
The little brown-headed guys are so adorable…and addicting to watch!
Thinking of Christmas today since it is at the stores… it would make a cute Christmas card to have a Nutcracker with a Nuthatch or two! 💜 Your photos always make me smile! 😄
And they are indeed little nutcrackers!
Such terrific photos! Their needle-sharp little bills fascinates me. Are they insectivores, Kathy?
WOW WOW WOW I Love Birds
Aww so cute!!
So cute. I’ve got some little brown-headed nuthatches hanging around this winter. My first time seeing them!
Aren’t they fun!
