TATTLE can understand - even respect - Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes not wanting to pimp their new baby for media attention. But could it really be true, as so many tabs are reporting, that not even their friends have seen Suri? Do they not have any friends? Wasn't it Elaine on "Seinfeld" who intoned, "You've got to see the baby! When are you going to see the baby?" It's a rite of passage. Parents show off their babies like they're prize pumpkins. So what's going on?

Nikolas Haass, a German M.D.-Ph.D and cancer researcher at Philadelphia's Wistar Institute, was horseback-riding on Saturday. So he came late to what birders had been chattering about on the Internet all afternoon: a brown-headed nuthatch had been identified in New Jersey for the first time. By 10 yesterday morning, Haass was at Cape and Lincoln Avenues, a beachside corner of dunes and pines where the tiny bird had been recorded - a rare spotting north of southern Delaware.

Three golfers teeing off at the 15th hole said they saw the animal frolicking in a sand trap about 2:30 p.m., club employee Michael Schonzeit said.

They completed the 18-hole course, returned to the clubhouse and reported the sighting.

All day long, there was no sighting of the wayward whale. But no news didn't mean good news. Thirty-five hours after it was last seen, the whale was finally spotted yesterday afternoon on the Delaware River - four miles north of Monday's sighting, away from the ocean. Marine scientists who had flown into Philadelphia to track the rare right whale as it meandered along the Delaware had hoped that the whale had made it to the open sea by now. "It concerns us," said Ed Lyman, with the Center for Coastal Studies on Cape Cod. "The longer it stays, the greater the chance of colliding with a ship.

Anyone see a lion in Upper Darby? On Tuesday, police received two anonymous calls reporting a mountain lion or bobcat may have been sighted entering the woods near Township Line Road and State Road, police said. Animal Control was dispatched to the area but no supersized feline was found, Police Superintendent Michael J. Chitwood said. There were reports of an earlier dogfight with a "large burly looking dog" who ran off, said Chitwood. "That is what we believe it was. " That didn't stop the media circus, however.

He just might be smarter than the average game officer. At least he has been for the last two days. A meandering black bear that has been spotted five times in Lower Bucks County since Tuesday has so far managed to elude authorities. That has left Scott M. Thomas, a wildlife conservation officer with the Pennsylvania Game Commission, to bear the burden of being outsmarted by a bear. "He's out here somewhere," Thomas said yesterday afternoon from the driver's seat of his forest green Ford Bronco.
