I have a solitary thrush visitng my garden at the moment to feast on the rowan berries. I did not know how teritorial they are - it stands in my oak tree on watch and chases away everything that comes into the garden. Are they always like this?
I also have a nuthatch and have watched it taking sunflower seeds from the feeder and poking them into the crevices in the oak tree bark. I didn't know that they did this either.
Hi Nancy welcome to the community from Sheffield.
I assume it's a Mistle Thrush because the Song Thrush I get in my garden gets bullied by the Blackbirds, I don't get Nuthatches but those that do say they can bully the other small birds.
Yep they will cache the seeds and nuts as will birds like Willow and Coal Tits.
