I finally found a Red-breasted Nuthatch in Canon City, and the bird is coming to my feeder as it evident in these pics. Birders all over the front range have been reporting seeing Red-breasted Nuthatches all the way to far eastern Colo as part of the unusually large migration of mountain birds down to the plains this fall. But I hadn't seen, or heard, one until this bird showed up.

This nuthatch spends all it's time at the feeder with peanut pieces and which is caged in to keep the squirrels at bay (though they still manage to snag the peanut feeder inside the cage and pull it to the edge where they chew the paint off the sides trying to get the peanuts). I still hear the White-breasted Nuthatch but haven't seen it on the feeder, possibly because this nuthatch is on it so much.
