the summer, where they neat, They are
migrants, and so when nesting-time Is
over and autumn has coma we see a
good deal more of - them. They have a
very queer name, don't you think?
Who would ever dream of cracking a
nut with a great, clumsy hatchet? But
it Is evidently because they use their
bills in this capacity that they have
been so called.
With these they hack .apart the thin
shelled nuts, such aa beech, hael and
chestnut. They like sunflower seeds,
and are very partial to kernels of corn.
They are thrifty little creatures, and
during the summer, when Insects are
plentiful, they live entirely on these,
storing away their nuts and seeds In
the crevices of the bark, bo that when
the frost kills the grubs and Insects
they may not go hungry. They know
exactly where they have' deposited each -nut,
and flying to the spot when hunger
bids them, hack patiently away with
the strong hatchet of their bills, the
blows of which can be heard to a good
distance. Sometimes we are prone to
think the nuthatchea do not bother
making a neat,' although they have such
an excellent tool wherewith to ,do this,
but, instead, locate in a woodpecker'a
nest or that of a chickadee.
The red-breasted bird naa a curious
habit of omearlng the entrance to, hla.
home with pitch for some unknown rea
son. But soma wice persons think that
he does this to prevent his enemies,
snakes, aquirrels . and ao forth, ; from
robbing his-nest. -
