For about two years now, I have had a successful water reticulation system
set up for the birds, planter saucer, fish tank pump, heater and an old vacuum
canister plus tubing. It has worked well throughout the coldest weather,
(the canister is insulated). However, the reason for this post is that today,
I observed a White-breasted Nuthatch take a leisurely and extend drink,
individual amounts. American Goldfinch and Pine Siskins are regulars but the
nuthatch is a new one for this observer!
