It may interest the birders among us, and it could give the rest of you a chuckle, to hear that a Red-Breasted Nuthatch has shown up at the feeders. It's a swift little guy that makes even the chickadees look stodgy, and beautifully colored.
And on the off-chance that you find that a funny name, how about some of the others I'm including in today's report to Project Feeder Watch at Cornell -- two White-Breasted Nuthatches, a Flicker, and three Tufted Titmouse. Titmouses? Titmice? Anyhow, three of 'em.
