We have had the Clark’s Nutcrackers coming to our feeders since 2013 and we sure enjoy their bold raucous behaviours.
Category 1: Birds with Food or at the Feeder
AWARD WINNER: Category 1: Judges’ Choice
Gorgeous Shot! You are lucky to have these cuties in your yard.
Beautiful bird and lovely composition
Love this! Awesome colors, and beautiful bird!
How do you get rid of Clark’s Nutcrackers from your feeding areas? They are a pest!!!! I can’t hang out suet anymore because they eat a whole cake in a day. And they steal all the peanuts I put out for the squirrels and Stellar jays. I’m sorry but this is one bird I do not like having around.
When I tried to register for the feeder watch webinar, it would not accept my email. It is firstname.lastname@example.org. Any advice? Thank you! Ranger Julie
