White-breasted Nuthatch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — I introduced the subject of how birds deal with food yesterday, specifically the differences between chickadees and nuthatches. Chickadees use their feet like hands to hold their seeds, etc. while working on them. This is the other method. The White-breasted Nuthatch carries the seeds off and finds a crack…in the wood of our deck rail here, but often in the bark of a tree…where it can wedge the seed in to hold it like a vice while it deals with getting it open and the kernel out.
