Aw, what a sweet little guy, nuthatches are so cute, I love the sound they make, heehee. I'm looking forward to feeding them this winter. Love the picture :)

Hi Eve, I have a lot of catching up to do. I see many wonderful photos on here and this darling little Nuthatch is very cute. They're so funny how they like to be upside down like that. Have a great week my friend. Cleome and I say thank you for dropping in ;)

Classic nuthatch shot Evie.

What a cutie, Eve. I love Nuthatches - those blue-gray feathers send me over the moon. I adore your Gulf Fritillary banner - excellent for autumn with the orange flowers.

Very nice shot. I love nuthatches as well! I think that the White-breasted Nuthatch hangs around all winter- no pun intended- along with the very cute Brown-headed Nuthatch. Every now and then you might also see a Brown Creeper.

Haven't seen one lately and was happy to see yours! That header put a sunny smile on my face!

Eve,
Woweey!! What a gorgeous header shot.. Love all those oranges, browns and yellows!!
Nuthatches are so nutty the way they run down those trees. You caught this one perfectly and he really does look like he stopped just to pose for you...knowing he was going to be posted on your neat blog!

Aw, what a cutie. He's so white and clean looking - he looks like he just got out of the shower!
Those are my Jim's favorite birds - only here, I don't think they're the white-breasted kind...they're just gray and black and cute. :-)

Sunny Side Up Eve love your picture of the Nuthatcher. Ours are sharing the oak with the Old Man and they keep making off with the corn and the cracked hickory nuts! We love those little stub tails-yak, yak yak, yak!

Birds truly are joyful gifts from God, are they not?

So much fun to watch these cut down the tree.
