There are at least three nuthatches that frequent my birdfeeder lately. I love watching the quick expressive way they flit from the tree to the feeder and back again. They are fearless little critters that seldom seem phased by my presence and are less likely than sparrows and finches to fly away as I tend to chores outside my home. I am currently reading How To be a Good Creature by Sy Montgomery, and I can't help but impart lessons, intentional or otherwise from these little friends. Fearless, and social, and not altogether phased by a bossy sparrow. Rather than fight the sparrows, they let them have their due and come back a short while later because even to the nuthatch there is enough for everyone and we needn't get aggressive over a few seeds.

Hey Aurora people... Ill be at St Maximilian Kolbe high-school, this Saturday, from 9am-2pm selling illustrative cards and prints. Also, for any garden/bird people, Ill be taking orders for custom painted squirrel baffles. I can also take any orders through email! 🤗✉️
One woman's trash is another woman's treasure .. with the exception of all my exes 😉 ANYWAYS i found this ceramic bird feeder at the thrift store even though i promised myself i was going to slow down on shopping, but I'm a sucker for anything orange and anything that hangs from the ceiling 😍 also, I'm willing to pay someone to start changing my letterboard for me, it's tedious & time consuming🤨 #thriftstorefinds #thrifting #thankful #birdfeeder #birdhouse #letterboard #rubbertree #shopaholic
I suppose I could consider myself an amateur #birder
now. It’s been so amazing having this window feeder and watching the beautiful birds visit!! So far I’ve had the pleasure of meeting: Black-capped chickadees, the Northern Cardinal (both male and female), the Tufted Titmouse, and this morning I discovered a female Whitebreasted Nuthatch at the feeder as well! I wasn’t able to get a picture of her but I’m sure she’ll be back. I love this so much! #birds #birdfeeder #birdwatching
My birds are in my fig tree watching chickadees eat at my window feeder ❤️ 🐤🐦🌿
Early morning images; a couple more inches have fallen in the last few hours.
It’s not even Thanksgiving!
Fortunately, most of the leaves are off the trees. Unfortunately, all of the summer annuals that were hanging in there until the cooler air moved in earlier this week have finished their season.
Rain is prognosticated for later today, but the prognosticators didn’t quite get this weather event right, so we’ll see!
Wish I could send this to California to help with the fires. ❄️
