Seasonal Observations: The Red Breasted Nuthatch

The Red Breasted Nuthatch has been visiting regularly, taking one sunflower seed at a time from the feeder, then flying with that seed to another tree, where it wedges the seed in a crack.  Sometimes the bird uses the grip of the tree to hold the seed in place so it can get at the food within and other times it just leaves the seed for later.
