The Nuthatch is a perennially favorite among backyard birds. They earn their name from the way they crack open seeds. Nuthatches jam their seeds and nuts into tree bark, and then will whack them with their beak to break them open. Get it…Nut Hatchers! Also known by toddlers as “That Funny Upside-down Bird”, a Nuthatchers foot has one big toe that faces backward, while its other three toes face forward. This allows it to creep head first down tree trunks while searching cracks and crevices for insects. Our Nuthatch stands proudly upright, but you’re welcome to tap it in upside down if you’re keen to keep the kids happy.
