Here is my best explanation:

'bird' is the definition.
(nuthatch is a kind of bird)

'which interrupts new union chapter' is the subsidiary indication.
'which' becomes 'that'.
'interrupts' is an insertion indicator.
'new' becomes 'n'.
'union' becomes 'u' (common abbreviation as in 'Trades Union Congress').
'chapter' becomes 'ch'.
'n'+'u'+'ch'='nuch'
'that' put into 'nuch' is 'nuthatch'.
