I just saw a baby nuthatch hit the window and dropped on the ground by the window. I ran out and checked him. He was not moving for a few minutes. I was so desperate and didn’t want to think he was dead. I picked him up slowly and kept him on my hand hoping he will wake up and start moving. I rubbed his tiny head and chin softly. Then his eyes and beaks opened!! He started to move!! I kept him on my hand to see if he recovers his strength and be able to fly again or not. I was ready to take him to a hospital. After good 10-15 minuets of resting on my hand, he finally stood up and flew away!!! He even said “thank you” to me before flying away!!!!! #akimichka #photograph #nuthatch
Who knew that Nuthatches would build their nests in the ground. Carefully constructed from maple leaves and grass. A perfect work of art. Unfortunately there were three eggs. I took a broken one out when I got home from work this morning and I don’t think she’s coming back to sit on the third 😞 #bird #egg #nest #nature #nuthatch
Ran out of suet blocks so I decided to make my own. White breasted nut hatches decimated 2 of them In just 4 hours.

Sitting at dinner and I saw a bunch of these guys flying around outside, so I grabbed my camera and braved the swarms of mosquitos to capture this image. #nuthatch #bcbirds #vacationimages
It's Friday tomorrow... yippee
