63/365 #345 Upside Down

Saw a new species at the feeder yesterday!  It’s a White Breasted Nuthatch.  Much like a woodpecker, eats and flies the same way.  First time I’d seen one of these, or paid enough attention to know it was something different.

There’s a lot of noise, I was too lazy to send it through noiseware.

  9. Good shot of a neat little bird. They’re very curious and I’ve gotten nuthatches to hand feed by emptying the feeder and holding up my hand with a few shelled peanuts in the palm. Get someone else to feed the bird while you handle the camera!

  10. They hang out with the chickadees at our cottage feeders (in Quebec). Pretty little guys…
