Your Florida Backyard NSiS Home Page Your Florida Backyard Nuthatches
Nuthatches forage upside down on tree branches and trunks looking for insects. They visit feeders for sunflower seeds and suet. They will use nest boxes, but the White-breasted is most likely to. Other nuthatches prefer to excavate their own cavities in partially rotted wood.
