The Nuthatch

The nuthatch is a small, compact passerine bird that belongs to the bird family Sittidae, comprising 25 species where 15 species are widespread in Asia and few species inhabiting the woodlands of the Northern Hemisphere. Resembling that of a small woodpecker, nuthatch sports blue-gray upperparts and whitish belly. It average 100mm – 195 mm in length and weighs around 10 g – 47 g, has large a head with black eye stripe, a powerful, black pointed bill, short tail and legs. An omnivore, nuthatch feeds primarily on insects, hazel nuts and seeds.

The Nyala

The Nyala (Tragelaphus angasii) is a medium sized Southern African antelope, which inhabits dry savanna woodland close to a water source. Adult males average 1.4 – 1.6 m tall and weigh between 55-125 kg; females around 90 cm tall and weigh a half as much as the male. Males have dark brown colored head and body with thin white stripes, whitish mane and white mark on the face, neck and eyes. They have loosely spiraled horns which can reach up to 80 cm long. Females are red-brown in color, carry white “V” between their eyes, but lacking in horns. Nyala drink water daily and primarily feed upon fresh grasses, leaves, twigs, flowers and fruits.

The Numbat

The Numbat (Myremecobius fasciatus), also called the Banded anteater, is a pouchless marsupial found in open woodlands  and forests in western Australia. This small animal grows to about 35-45 cm including its bushy tail. It has reddish brown fur mark with white and black stripes along its back, tapered head, round-tipped ears, and long, powerful tongue. A solitary diurnal creature, it is active during the day searching for food and sleeps at night in hollow logs. Using its long, sticky tongue, numbats feed almost exclusively on termites. Adults need up to 20,000 termites each day.

    The nightjar from that vantage of the picture looks like a miniature of a flying dragon or maybe my eyes are just seeing too much? Are you going to write a series of this type of article? Sort of the name of animals following the letters in the alphabet. :) Parang “bolinao” ung neon tetra ah.
