Thanks!

Yeah, they sure do like to do that. Especially the running upside down part! (Treecreepers as well, though they move a little differently...)


By the way, if you like birds, be sure to check out my bird photography gallery (or just the plain ol' featured gallery). There are tons of other bird photos (though, to be honest, not all are up to my current standards anymore!). :D

Thank you! :thanks:

I love seeing these fellas up close, but it's usually a bad sign when they start coming to our feeder since they have to rely on fresh insects for their protein (and the food usually doesn't have many insects in them or any at all).

your very welcome! :) (Smile) I have a soft spot for the Nuthatches; when I was young I us to watch our local one out maneuver the Bluejays at our bird feeder.

I did not know that about them. We had a week of arctic cold, but it is warn and rainy now. I have seen insects flying around, so there is a chance at food locally. Toy Plane

Good photograph. A 'reflection of sunlight on the eye', would make this a stunning photograph and naturally enhance the colour tones. Good Luck.

And they definitely serve a purpose! I've seen them do a forward 360 while clinging to the perch. :omg:
