Wood Nuthatch (Sitta europaea).


While walking my local patch I hear Nuthatch (Sitta europaea ssp. caesia) calling more often than seeing them so when an opportunity to get some images presented itself during a visit to Warnham L.N.R. I took a few shots when one briefly visited a feeder.

 Just a pity about the shadow cast by the roof of the table feeder!

After a very long wait I eventually got that classic downward pose when it perched on a nearby tree trunk. FAB.

  2. I hear them calling too, but as yet have not been able to get good shots like these. Love the one on the tree in classic pose.

  5. The nuthatch is a fast moving bird so these shots are excellent and very hard to get! We do have a lot of them at our feeders and nesting near.

  9. What a sweet little bird. :)

    We'll be back at work starting tomorrow so I'll only get in here on Sundays while we are in US ports. I just want to let you know I haven't forgotten to stop by to see your beautiful posts.

  10. Frank, I love your little nuthatch! We have both White-breasted and red-breasted over here. The white-breasted come to my feeders all the time but the red-breasted seem to be more shy and I only see them once in awhile! One has been visiting my feeder off and on for the past week. I hope it sticks around long enough for me to get a photo of it as well!
