I was so excited to see the Brown Headed Nuthatch
in the yard at Rockwood during the snow in January 2009.
But when he was still there in March I really was pleased.
I hope he decides to stay with us.
The reference books indicate Rockwood is just barely in his area.
The male and female look the same.
All 3 of these photos were taken March 9. Wednesday I went to Veterans Park in Spring City, and had another pleasant surprise, they were getting started building their nest in one of the box birdhouses. The box was a standard bluebird box, but higher off the ground than the bluebirds prefer. So yesterday I made another trip to Walmart for another new bluebird house. When I go back to Rockwood tomorrow we will be putting up the 2nd bluebird house this week. I will take either one that decides to use them.
