[CT Birds] Wait, there's more! Re: another Red-breasted Nuthatch

8/23/12 - Hamden, North Lake Dr. near Mather -- Red Breasted Nuthatch, by ear about 8:30 & again 11:30 A.M.

Also, I heard RBN at least twice before, but not clearly enough to be certain -- for it's been a while since I've heard one.  I recorded this one on my iPhone & checked it with the indefatigable Flo McBride.

As for food supplies, should we be prepared to stock up on Nyjer?
