Titmouse shows how to eat a Peanut
Starting in the Fall the titmouse will store away food for the winter months. Hiding its food in trees and other places. Some of the foods that they like are; black oil sunflower seeds, dry roasted unsalted peanuts, insects, and berries.
This Tufted Titmouse is holding its peanut with its feet, so that it can take bites of the nut.

The adult Wild turkey wingspan can be up to 6 feet across. The toms (male) weights anywhere from 10 up to 20 lbs. or more. The hens (female) can weigh anywhere from 8 to 12 lbs. give or take a few lbs.
At night the wild turkeys like to sleep (roost} up in tall trees.
An adult wild turkey can live as long as 10 years, or perhaps longer.
Nuthatch using a rock
Red-breasted Nuthatches will search trees looking for food that may be hiding under flakes of bark, and etc. They will go up, down, and sometimes sideways on the branches and trunks of the tree looking for insects. They may at times catch flying insects too.
In the fall and winter months they will come to feeders looking for sunflower seeds, unsalted peanuts, and suet. They will hide seeds at times to find and eat later when food is hard to find. If their food is too large for them to eat with just one bite they will use their bill and hammer the large piece under the bark in a tree to hold it so that they can break it down to a size that they can eat.
And they can also use a rock to help hold the food for them. That is what this nuthatch is doing in the pictures.
Red Admiral Butterflies
The Red Admiral butterflies can fly at night time and daytime. The butterflies will more likely hibernate during the winter months. They need to keep an eye out for large insects, bats, birds, and wasps, etc. that would like to have them as a meal.
During the months of October and November the Mallard Ducks will find a mate. They will stay together until the end of their breeding season. Which may end in early March and could last into late May.
The female ducks will choose a place to breed near where they were hatched from most of the time. It is the females that will take care of their young ones.
