    White Breasted Nuthatch, my favorite bird

  • Linda Rommelaere

    Birds in the Ontario winter garden - White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) climb down trees head first. You can spot this little bird by its black cap and beady black eyes on a white face. Its undertail coverts are chestnut coloured. This bird dines on insects in the summer and in the winter it is in search of ants, scale, beetles, caterpillars and insect eggs. Fill a feeder with suet, sunflower seeds and peanuts to attract this funny little bird.

Red breasted nuthatch. Sadly, I have found feathers of these - seems to be a favourite of the hawks around here. You often see them singly or in pairs moving upside down down a trunk.

Killdeer - the female can be quite an actress if she thinks her nest is threatened.

Orange-breasted Trogon. Trogon birds are residents of tropical forests worldwide. They feed on insects and fruit, and their broad bills and weak legs reflect their diet and arboreal habits. Trogons have soft, often colourful, feathers with distinctive male and female plumage. The trogons are insectivorous, usually hunting from a perch. They nest in holes dug into trees or termite nests, laying 2–4 white or pastel-coloured eggs.
