martyc35 08/07/10 01:19 pm a darling little red-breasted nuthatch, climbing upside down, up and down the tree trunks and hopping into the feeder for a choice nut, which looked nearly as big as the bird. White-breasted nuthatches were regulars around my feeders in Santa Rosa, but this is the first of the species I have seen here in Eureka, and the first ever red-breasted for me. Raccoons are still around at night, but the skunks seem to be giving up, I hope.

Shelley 08/07/10 08:02 pm Aren't they fun? I have red-breasted nuthatches at my feeders all the time. For such tiny things, they sure *honk* (in that nasal, beep-beep sort of way) awfully loudly! I have been so sad not to have any goldfinches at all this year but the nuthatches seem to be enjoying the nyjer seed as well as the mixed seed from the other popular feeder. I have seen at least 2 together though there may be more than these 2 around.
martyc35 08/08/10 02:28 pm "My" goldfinches have been slow to come to the nyjer feeder, too, but two have been visiting within the last week. Now that they have found it, I expect more of them to come around during the rainy season. We'll see. Spoke too soon about the skunks; turned on the porch light last night at 11, and there were the two baby skunks, scarfing up birdseed on the ground. At least they weren't spraying all over the place.
