Busy yard at the feeders today on a gloomy, after the rain morning. Jays; chickadees; white throat sparrows, and even a sapsucker. so this nuthatch came close enough to join the party.
thanks Nick...one of my favourites as well. They don't stick around for more than a millisecond. Just grab the seed and run.My favorite backyard bird! NICE!
thanks AllanYou captured the classic nuthatch pose. Good job.
thanks Louis..much appreciatedVery nicely done Bob, great feather detail and you caught the perfect pose.
thanks RickClassic nuthatch pose. Very nice Bob.
they are cheeky and usually the first to arrive. They're not as shy as other birds, though they usually hit and run and don't stick around for long.Nice capture. One of my favorite little birds. So cheeky.
Thank you BoblouReally nice picture with good color detail and pose.
Thanks very much Terri.As good as it gets!!
They are busy and jumpy for sure. If I can manage to get one to sit still for more than a millisecond then I'm happy.Nice, busy jumpy little things, wish my feeder area was not so shaded.
They are very bold and not shy about approaching where the food source is. Have them eating out of my hands, literally - though I don't like to do that too oftenVery nice. I love these guys, one of which landed on my shoulder once when I was out in the bush.
