Red-breasted Nuthatch

Nuthatch of Bootstrap Analysis Blog offers easy ways to help birds near you! Also, with all the rain we’ve had in the Midwest over the past few weeks, it’s important to check your bird feeders for moldy birdseed. Clean your feeders, too, and be sure to rake underneath them to remove droppings, old and moldy seed. For many Wisconsin residents (and elsewhere), this may be the least of their worries - five counties have been declared federal disaster areas in the southwest part of our state.
