Nuthatch

I had to do a lot of work in Photoshop to get this White-breasted Nuthatch to show up in this pic since he was in deep shade with a very sunny background. I wanted to show him on this ring of peanuts that he was enjoying so much - it took him about 1/2 second to grab a peanut and then take off. I'll show you the original pic tomorrow.

Great capture Pat. Amazing how such a tiny bird manages to carry a peanut.

I’ve never seen one on a feeder! Only climbing trees! So cute!

The tough little Nuthatches are one of the few birds that spend the winter around here. Fine looking feeder and shot of the bird. It is hard to get a back lite subject to become visible.

Photoshop to the rescue!

What a cute little fellow. The peanuts look almost as big as he is.

It's cute bird the Nuthatch. Well done to get some colour in those tricky conditions of shade and sunshine in the background.

Great shot!

I don't see how a tiny bird like that can eat a peanut. Like me swallowing a watermelon whole.
