Red-breasted Nuthatch in rainy snow. We got another inch or so of white stuff yesterday.
Hard to get a photo of this zippy little bird, it never holds still.
An intense bundle of energy at your feeder, Red-breasted Nuthatches are tiny, active birds of north woods and western mountains.
I’m not sure if this bird is a winter visitor or resident. It likes suet, suet dough, peanuts, and some part of the bird seed mix I get from Agway. It’s quite small compared to the other birds.
Speaking of winter, Boston breaks seasonal snowfall record with 108.6 inches
Boston is an hour south. We have received around the same amount or more of snow this year, so maybe coastal New Hampshire has broken a record too? It’s been quite a winter, anyway. And I speak as someone who has been out in it every school day, early morning and afternoon, driving a school bus for fun and profit.
Four days till official spring. Vernal equinox is at 6:45 p.m. EDT on Friday, March 20.
