Bird Watching Notes

White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis, ORDER: Passeriformes, FAMILY: Sittidae)

This is often repeated everyday; Get a nut, take it to the tree, put it in a tree knott, and eat!

Beautiful bird pic's with report thanks mike sir for sharing that.

Hi @etcmike. The woodpecker is always in the area, don't those birds migrate.

Some woodpeckers stay in the area all year and a few do seem to migrate to warmer locations.

Steem on!
