Red-breasted Nuthatch

Red-breasted nuthatch (Sitta canadensis)

Like the black-capped chickadee, this small, short-tailed bird is regularly seen at feeders. It is a welcome visitor because of its attractive grey and rust colouring and its friendly call. The nuthatch also nests in cavities in wildlife trees and so again having some dead and dying trees around your property will help them in their nesting efforts. Nuthatches eat large amounts of black oil sunflower seeds and also eat shelled peanuts and suet.
