Orphaned fledgling White-Breasted
ready for the aviary
Known for walking head-first down tree trunks, this short-tailed
bird eats bugs in summer and nuts and seeds in winter. Nuthatches
also eat suet. They are cavity nesters, and mated pairs stay
together all year. They usually do not migrate.
Here is a fledgling Nuthatch that came to us as a nestling
after being found in a yard. It could not be safely returned
to its nest, so we cared for it until we could release it as
a healthy juvenile.
