a rare bird
For most of the eastern United States the White-breasted Nuthatch is a regular at birdfeeders. Here on the southern end of the Georgia coast it is a rare bird. If you want to see this bird in Glynn County you should go Paulk's Pasture. On a whim John, Marge, Carole and I decided we were going to find the birds. We got to Paulk's Pasture mid-afternoon and it was real quiet. Still I enjoyed the quiet stillness of the area. We walked the road finally the birds came alive and there was our little nuthatch. What a thrill not just for the bird but this cypress swamp as well.
