Out For Now

For years I have observed that Brown Headed Nuthatches here come and go.  Around frequently for a few weeks or more, then absent for similar periods of time (or at least not very frequent).  And we are in a lull.  I don't recall seeing one for some time, perhaps since July.  This is not a problem as these delightful rascals always return eventually.  And I would rather see them on a dreary winter day than in the hot summer.  There's something uplifting about watching birds at feeders in the cold times.  As to when the BHNs return I cannot guess.  Let's hope it is soon.
