Greetings all:

Today at my yard was Nuthatch Heaven.
I started my daily count at 0715 and within a few minutes I had all three species of Nuthatches.

But it wasn’t until 0905 Hrs that I went back into the house to warm up some that I walked up to my back door and there on one of my two shepherds hooks feeders were two RB Nuthatches and to the right of them on another shepherds hook feeders were two more. So I saw all 4 at one time.

In just a few seconds there were two WB Nuthatches on my Sweetgum coming to a platform feeder and then 2 BH Nuthatches were also coming into the first shepherds hook feeders.

Three species 8 individual Nuthatches at once.

Following is my eBird Report
