White-breasted Nuthatch

White-breasted Nuthatch7876Yesterday there was a nuthatch at the feeder so I tapped on the window. He glanced over and resumed eating, so I tapped again, this time a little harder. Again he glanced over, and again he resumed eating. What is going on here, nuthatches LOVE peanuts! The third time I tapped the glass with a resounding THUD, THUD, THUD! Message received! He raced over to the window and perched on the edge of the glass, peeked in and there we were, beak to beak! Apparently there a was a glare on the glass and he couldn’t see me from the feeder. Then he moved over to his favorite spot so I could open the door and put out some peanuts.
