Quick Pygmy Nuthatch facts; When they exist it is an indicator of a good healthy ponderosa pine forest. These lil guys were caught stealing from my feeder; which get a lot of winter activity alongside of the chickadees and other nuthatches. This little beauty is one good reason to keep sunflower seeds in the feeder during winter months.
