This Red Breasted Nuthatch has been visiting my feeder for the past couple of weeks. This is an unusual bird for South Texas. From my understanding, some years they migrate here for the winter, and some they don't. Apparently, there has been an irruption in the population this year.
Even the Titmouse looks a little confused by his presence. The Red Breasted Nuthatch feeds along with the other birds at the feeder. He is very docile and will allow me to get very close to him.
Hope he sticks around for the winter. To learn more about the Red Breasted Nuthatch, please click here.
