Many of the visitors to our feeders love peanuts. The nuthatch, Red-bellied woodpecker, chickadee and cardinals all seem to enjoy the treat, that is when they can snatch one away from the Blue jays. But they do manage to sneak in, and this little Tufted titmouse was gracious enough to eat his right there on the feeder so I could see him better.
Having a beak better suited to prying than cracking, he holds the nut with his toes, breaking it apart with quick jabs,
then cleans up the pieces.
Yum--may I have another?!?
