I was observing 4-5 red-breasted nuthatches around the feeders in the backyard, and I saw something seemed a bit odd. It appeared they were getting seed out of the feeders or off the ground, and placing the seeds in the cracks and crevices in the bark of the Bradford Pear trees in the back yard. Are they saving for a rainy day? Anyone else ever see this? Thx
I see that behavior often with the WBNuthatch. It really steps up in the fall. I also see it with the Red Bellied WP.
Blue Jays are fun to watch when they tuck a peanut in the taller grass and even go so far as to cover the spot with a leaf.
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear to be bright until you hear them speak.
I too used to watch the WB nuthatch hide their seeds in my patio furniture from my office window.
Now my office has no window. LOL I'm upstairs in the foyer. The hummingbirds now come to the grand babies toy room window. :) Maybe they'll get hooked on birds.
Lots of birds do this as you can see by everyone elses responsse. I have even watched a Chickadee hide mealworms in a crack in our picnic table!
