White Breasted Nuthatches Enjoying Peanut Butter

My amazing 'upside down' white breasted nuthatches are thoroughly enjoying the suet feeders and peanut butter log.  It seems they prefer hanging upside down more than any other bird I've ever seen.  I love their beautifully dapper markings.  Did you know that they are also known as Devil Down Birds?
