Melanie 02/03/12 11:09 am The word of a free lunch has gotten out - While I have had visits by a pair of white breasted nuthatches for several weeks, they are the only ones who have come to the feeder and even then only every 2-3 days.

This morning there has been a steady stream of several nuthatches (I can see them running up and down the tree trunks, plus titmice and chickadees and even a Hairy woodpecker in addition to the yellow-bellied sapsucker who is a regular (but not at the feeder). Earlier this morning I was watching a small flock of about 10 robins who were perched up in the trees and in the brush when a dark shadow flew over. The cry went up and at least 75 birds exploded from the brush and branches - robins - titmice, chickadees, blue jays and Carolina wrens. Who knew there were that many lurking? About 10 minutes later the hawk exited the woods and it looks like many have returned.

I normally don't see the hawks (both RTH's and Coopers) until very late in the afternoon, just before dusk. Odd time to be hunting.
martyc35 02/03/12 02:53 pm Wonderful that they are letting themselves be known (to you, not the hawk). The LBBs are here in force, too. Guardian seems to be the Steller's Jays; the little guys wait for them to demonstrate that the coast is clear near the feeders.

cathy 02/08/12 11:55 pm I went on a bird count in Eastern Washington and in order to flush out RED breasted nuthatches, the leader used his iPhone to sound like a Northern Pygmy Owl. It drove them nuts - but then we could count them.
