The Birchnutter is a small, round, Slurper-like monster that are spawned in groups by Poison Birchnut Trees. They attack the target of the Poison Birchnut Tree they have spawned from. They attack their target by leaping at them, dealing 5 damage on each hit. They are spawned periodically to defend the Poison Birchnut Tree. The large amount of Birchnutters, along with the Poison Birchnut Tree's dangerous roots, make it fairly challenging to cut the tree down. They are easily avoidable otherwise however, and are easy to kill individually. Birchnutters drop Twigs or Birchnuts, meaning they are a good way to farm Birchnuts.

Birchnutters, unlike Eyeplants, can spawn from any kind of turf. They take one hit from an Ice Staff to be frozen but they can't be put to sleep. Instead, they go back underground when a Pan Flute or other similar items are used against them.

Below is the number of hits it takes with each weapon to kill Birchnutters when playing with characters with a default damage modifier. The Weather Pain is not included due to the random nature of its projectile.
