Nuthatches (Sittidae)

The nuthatch is a plump bird about the size of a great tit that resembles a small woodpecker. It is blue-grey above and whitish below, with chestnut on its sides and under its tail. It has a black stripe on its head, a long black pointed bill, and short legs. It breeds in central and southern England and in Wales, and is resident, with birds seldom travelling far from the woods where they hatch.

Hello Les,
A very pretty Nuthatch you present us with today. We have the White Breasted Nuthatch living near our home, which are not nearly as brightly colored as this one. You managed to capture some fine detail and even got a little twinkle in it's eye. Love the nice exposure and clean blurred BG. Great work!!

Hallo Les
This is such a lovely little bird with lovely details in its fluffy feathers. It almost looks like the Concorde on route to take off for flight. I agree with Peter that you captured it in a pleasant pose. I also like the composition and point of view. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Les
Belle prise de vue,couleurs et gestion de la profondeur sont bien gérés.

Haola Les: Lovely, very nice shot...una toma excelente con una composición extraordinaria de una especie que me da la sensaci´n de que es muy inquieta y dificil de fotografiar...saludos.
