Hello Mr.Derek,
After a long gap I am watching your picture here in TN.
Well captured this Nuthatch.Splendid details on plumage with nice light.Like the way you have framed it.
Thanks for sharing,

You have managed to describe in great detail the plumage of this Sitta canadensis using a calm approach and excellent light. Perfect gleam in her eye and very timely capture captured bird with a seed in its beak.
