Nuthatch

Another nuthatch, a red-breasted one. The last nuthatch photo was a white-breasted one. (The red-breasted nuthatch has the stripe across the eye that the white-breasted one doesn't.) If I saw a brown-headed one my nuthatch trinity would be complete, but they don't hang out this far north.

Awesome!

Jess said...

He is adorable! And what an amazing, clear shot of him! The only birds I've seen in my yard so far have been crows and robins... but maybe I could photograph a robin if I can be patient enough, LOL.

Nice shot, Becky. Very crisp and lots of details. I would love seeing some nuthatches. I know we have them, but they are pretty shy.

What a beautiful and crisp shot! Great job!

Michelle said...

Erika said...

Wow, great photo! Do you have feeders near your house? I never can get close enough to the birds to get decent pics of them.

Beth said...

Great job! I have never even tried to capture a bird, they move too fast!

Reds said...

What a cute little bird! Great capture!

Mandy said...

Amazing! I don't know HOW people get shots like this. Seriously...I think the birds hate me. Great clarity. Did you shoot this with your 27-70 or your 70-300?

Great focus on him. I just love bird photos. I need to go get bird food today and see if they start coming around.

What a pretty bird, you got great focus! I'd have scared the bird away. :)
