New Nuthatch

August 07, 2015  •  8 Comments

I haven't seen the pygmy nuthatch family much at all this summer but a new species has arrived in the area.  A family of white-breasted nuthatches has taken up residence in the neighborhood.  I see them at my feeders and have seen them on my walks as well.   That accounts for all 3 species in this area of the country.  Kinda cool!  Not the best photo op but gotta take it when I can.   The shade and clouds were a challenge for this busy body bird.

He's cute and difficult to capture, i'm sure.

Now that's one little bird I'd like to see! I know how quickly the little ones move so congratulations on capturing images in low light conditions. I especially like the 'peek round the tree' shot.

Fantastic! I love these little guys, but for some reason we don't get them at the feeders where we live now.

Most of ours are the White Breasted. You got some good shots:)
