Default Feeding Nuthatch.

A Nuthatch comes over to me when I go out onto the deck. If I don't take food with me, I go in and get something for him.

They are very friendly. I haven't seen a red breasted nuthatch in several years

A bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Your getting good holding camera, & feeding your family, that is a handsome nuthatch.

We used to do this at a nature center we visited regularly. The chickadees and nuthatches would eat from hands and the kids loved it! I've always wanted to try to get them to do that here at home but haven't taken the time to get out there on a regular basis to sit and wait. Maybe this fall.......
