Red-breasted Nuthatch Irruption and Ron Pittiway's Winter Finch Forecast

The Red-breasted Nuthatches are continuing their current irruption down into the southeast United States as well as across the country.  Over the past couple weeks Red-breasted Nuthatches have become almost as common as White-breasted.  It has become strange to go birding and not see at least one Red-breasted.  Hopefully we will get a few other irruptive species this coming fall and winter.

I would highly suggest you read Ron Pittiway's Winter Finch Forecast here.  Every year he predicts how the irruptive species will move and he has a great track record.  It is a great heads-up for all birders that hope to find an irruptive species this year!  



Good luck finding one of these species!
