We have been entertained by the Nuthatch babies (Assups) this week. They can fly just fine, but they don’t want to go onto the suet holder to eat….so they sit on the branch and squawk and carry on until their Mother or Father puts suet in their mouth.
It is hard to tell the babies from the parents.
A parent feeding a baby. The only time the squawking stops is when their mouths are full. One day there was two parents and two babies…there was lots of noise. We have been encouraging the babies to go onto the feeder…. we make a great cheering section!
