Watching the vigorous bird activity at my parents' feeder, and have decided that nuthatches are my very favorite.
And competition is fierce: cardinals, hummingbirds, red-bellied, downy, AND hairy woodpeckers, tufted titmice, and (close second) carolina wren.
But nuthatches just land on the underside of a tree branch like it's no big deal.

@janellecshane They're so damn cute and cautious with their "snatch and run" feeding style.

@Andy_P And they make the cutest noises!
Although I'm discovering that cardinals make clucking noises as they hop around and THAT's pretty cute too
