Nuthatches walk both up and down a tree trunk, hence its name. They’re hole breeders known for diminishing their spawning caves by mud ‘masonry’. This masonry urge is often so strong that even when the hole already has the appropriate size, another masonry work is made nearby.
The nuthatch has a gray blue crown and upper parts, red-brown flanks and buff white cheeks and chin. During breeding season the male’s colours are extra intense. Short feet with relatively long toes, long nails to have a good grip on the tree bark. Their beak is pointy and thin.
What is the best spot for your nuthatch?
This bird really belongs in a tree as it name already suggests. But you can also put him on a trunk in the border of course.
What material is the nuthatch made of?
This nuthatch is made of cortenstaal which gives it a nice corrode layer when kept outside – which is why all the storms, rain and wind in the Netherlands will only make your silhouette nuthatch all the more beautiful.
What are the shipment costs?
The standard shipment costs are € 3.95 per package in the Netherlands. The tariffs for shipment to Belgium, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden and Norway are in accordance with PostNL tariffs.
