Wednesday Wings - Red-breasted Nuthatch

This winter we've been blessed with several resident Red-breasted Nuthatches. They're friendly little birds, about four inches long.

Sometimes they'll fly right up to the feeder while it's being filled and give a little chirp to let us know it's time to get out of the way so they can eat.

This is a rare position for Redbreast because . . .

. . . like their White-breasted cousins they prefer to live their life upside down.

Check out those feet. Perfect for the inverted lifestyle.
