White Breasted Nuthatch.

White Breasted Nuthatch. These little birds are fiercely territorial over our bird feeder! They religiously guard their food source and quickly chase away any competitor birds. But the allure of free food is too much for the multitude of other feathered visitors in our garden and the other birds constantly steal the “Nuthatches food”. Sadly the Nuthatch hasn’t realized that he (or she - my eyesight isn’t good enough to tell....) probably expends more energy chasing the other birds away than he (or she) consumes at the feeder. There’s probably a lesson for us all in this....
