Two Sundays ago, somebody in a car saw our cameras and binoculars and asked us if we’d see a Red-breasted Nuthatch. I had, in early February, but not since.
This past Saturday, I saw one. In the same general area as the one two months before…
The bird was on a pine. It was only later when looking at my pictures on my computer that I noticed three cicada exuviae still stuck on the tree. Wonder if some of the sap has helped keep these attached? This was the underside of a branch, so that may have provided some protection against the blast of winter for six months or more.
