Nuthatch collects mud for its nest, video


This video shows a nuthatch collecting mud. The bird will use the mud to make the entrance to its nest smaller, so that animals bigger than itself won’t be able to enter.

Richard Polderman made this video on 23 March 2015, at nature reserve Gorselse Heide in the Netherlands.
