Rohrerbot, thanks!
Gary, glad to have helped you out.
Lori Ann, many people call it a "red-headed", probably because the red-belly is so hard to see. Glad we could help you!

Now, Ill look for it the next time he visits for a peanut. Mine doesnt visit as frequently as my downyes or hairys. . I remember I incorrectly called it a red headed on a FB post then realized my error when I went to my bird book. The actual red headed woodie is much rarer. I also realized I have to types of nuthatches visiting, the red breasted and the white breasted.

Thanks. I have wondered that in the past. Now I know.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
