[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A common bird of deciduous forests and wooded suburbs, the White-breasted Nuthatch can be seen hopping headfirst down the trunks of trees in search of insect food. It frequents bird feeders and takes sunflower seeds off to the side of a tree, where it wedges them into a crevice and hammers them open.

A nice study of the bird, I am assuming that it has been cropped fairly tight, which accounts for the slight noise, can be fixed by using a noise filter. Sharpness is good and I like the pose. TFS regards Bill.

Nice shot Kris,
I've had one of these at the feeder all winter, but I can never get it to sit in one spot long enough for me to get a photo of it.
Great capture!!! Well done!!
