Count Birdcula

This is a little White Breasted Nuthatch.  They always make me think of vampires because of the way they walk with their head facing the ground as they come down the trees.  Why don't they get dizzy?  Why don't they fall?  Why doesn't the weight of that peanut make the little guy topple over? Count Birdcula isn't telling, so I guess I'll have to look it up.


  1. Haha, Count Birdcula! And... it looks as though he's wearing a black cape too!

    Are you referring to Richard Roxburgh's Dracula walking down the wall in Van Helsing?
    That's who immediately came to mind when you mentioned the little bird walking head downwards :)

  2. We have these delightful little birds here too...never gave it much thought as to why they creep down the do little wrens too. Your post made me smile. Thanks for making me think out of the box (LOL)! Have a great day.

  3. Love Brirdcula. Such a charmer. I'm not sure if we have them around here but I'm going to keep my eye out for these little devils.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
