In celebration of 2018 Year of the Bird, Shenandoah National Park will feature a visiting or resident bird on Feathered Friend Fridays.
Our first star is the White-breasted Nuthatch. These ever busy birds cache food (such as nuts) in bark crevices so they have food for the lean winter months. You might see a nuthatch whacking at a tree with its long beak as it hatches out a previous food stash -- thus earning its namesake! #birdyourworld #featheredfriendsfriday #featheredfriends #nuthatch #bird #shennps
