Nuthatch on the feeder!

By Wilco54
I made a couple of bird feeders. This one, at a small house in Burgundy, has been bossed by a couple of Nuthatches!

'made' a feeder - thta really shows up those of us that struggle with all things practical. anyhow, once you have the bird's attention have you conisdered then secreting either sunflower seeds or suet into more natural loooking habitat - old logs perhaps or even that wall in the background

I think thats a constructive comment- thank you! I had not considered that, why would you suggest that? Does it get the nuthatch away from the feeder or is to just get a more natural or photogenic feeding spot? Many thanks

hi Chris, don't get me wrong i am not 100% anarok regards my own images but i just think that baiting a more photogenic area woul dimprove the image opportunities - take a look at my garden birds inc Nuthatch, all are unashamably sitting on a baited log or such. thanks for taking comments the right way

Thanks

I suppose not a complete nerd would be close but thats more for technology people! Obessive possibly but its a bit strong. You dont have anoraks in Canada?

We do, - I think we invented them, - but that term I never heard of, - only read here. We call them Parkas
