Red-breasted Nuthatch Stashing Peanut - January 8, 2017
This female Red-breasted Nuthatch grabbed a peanut from the feeder and placed it in a crack in the bark of our wild cherry tree. They often do this as a holder while they peck away at the peanut. You can barely see the top of the peanut just below her beak. The Hairy Woodpeckers have done a number on this tree over the past few months - I hope it survives.
