Nuthatch hides a Nut - Bird Behavior

Have a very good reason for everything you do.
~Laurence Olivier
I watched while the White-breasted Nuthatch took a seed/nut - hid it behind some tree bark - and back he came for more. I don't recall him ever eating these as he took them - just hiding them. I guess he was saving them for later :)
Wishing you a Wonderful Day!

How cute -- I don't recall ever seeing ours do that. Great capture Kerri. :)

That's what I do now that I am eating healthier. I hide the bad food and try to forget where I put it.

Oh. I didn't know they did that! Good photo, too, my friend ~

It's amazing what you learn when you sit quietly and observe.

Great close-up of bird behavior, Kerri! One of our huge trees closest to the feeder must be filled with seeds. I see the nuthatches hiding their seeds in the bark constantly. So cute!

Beautiful shot!
Birds are a lot like we are, aren't they? Sometimes thinking not just about the present but also about the future.

Nice shot Kerry, they are a fascinating bird to watch as they tuck seeds into bark here and there. I've always wondered how they remember where they hid them...

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness what a beauty.
Some of our birds are back and some still need to find the way.

Catherine said...

I always wondered where those nuthatches flew off to with their nuts! So cute!

I've never noticed nuthatches doing this! I always see the chickadees flying off with seeds. I will have to watch the nuthatches a little closer!
