Everybody Loves A Nut

As soon as I wrote “Everybody loves a nut” for the title of this post, my mind automatically continued with, “and the whole world loves a weirdo!” Now, I had no idea who sang this silly little song, but clearly it was lodged in the “things I didn’t know I knew” recesses of my brain. And thanks to the wonders of Google, I can fill you in that the voice behind the lyrics was the legendary Johnny Cash.

Despite the silliness of the song, my backyard does seem to have an abundance of nut lovin’ birds. Here are several that stopped by the other day to check out the peanut stash in the dogwood tree.

Tufted Titmouse
Eastern Bluebird – female
White-breasted Nuthatch
Downy Woodpecker – male
Pine Warbler – male
Red-breasted Nuthatch

I just realized I have been munching on cashews while typing this post, so I guess I can be included in the title too!

    1. I look so funny trying to fill it! I have a loooong plastic piece of piping that I use like a big straw to reach it. The things we will do for a picture!

  1. As that commercial goes “sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don’t.” I love cashews, bought some and couldn’t keep from working my way down in that can in short order!

  2. β€œNut-thing” better than your bird photos! πŸ˜‰ The Planters Peanut mobile was in front of our grocery store at the end of summer, I almost took a photo of it! 😊 Funny how memories come up sometimes, I agree! πŸ₯œπŸ¦
