Red-breasted Nuthatches have reached the Gulf Coast!

 Cute Red-breasted Nuthatches are still at my feeders in SW NH. Even though they can breed in NH, I saw an influx here in late summer. Red-breasted Nuthatches are part of this big "irruptive" year, especially for finches, that's going on now caused by food shortages in northern areas. Many Red-breasted Nuthatches have moved out of their year round range down to the far southern edges of their non-breeding range, as shown in light purple on this eBird map for Feb. Make sure and submit your eBird reports for this species, so more can be learned about the distribution of this little nuthatch.
