I am so enthusiastic about my new feeder birds! I went to a garden centre today to see what else was available for encouraging the birds to stay around my yard for the winter. I bought a peanut feeder, and as I was hanging it up, the Red-breasted Nuthatch attacked it fearlessly. He was six inches from my face and pecked at the peanuts with plenty of gusto. This is one way to keep a nuthatch in one place for thirty to sixty seconds! I think I will have this bird tamed before the Chickadees! You may need to pause the video clip while it buffers, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
My daughter started Christmas baking this weekend, accompanied by Christmas music and movies. The recipes are in Come Home for Supper.
