Saturday critters – Nuthatch(Scortarul in romanian language)

 The nuthatches are singing birds  belonging to the Sittidae family, which comprises about 50 species spread around the world.

The nuthatches  have their nests in the woods, the entrance is reduced by small pieces of clay, avoiding the penetration of the pests and the cold inside.

Nuthatches usually feed with  small insects found in the bark of trees, thus surviving for the duration of the year, without any major problems.

In the nest of these birds there are often significant seed reserves, the food being fully assured during the entire period of their stay in a certain place.

Nuthatches are very vocal. Their breeding songs tend to be simple and often identical to their contact calls but longer in duration. I took these photos in Chindia, where these birds can be seen  on  the bark of old trees, looking for food.
