[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is a resident bird of deciduous woods and parkland, with some old trees for nesting. It feeds on insects, seeds and nuts. Its old name “nut-hack” derives from its habit of wedging a nut in a crevice in a tree, and then hacking at it with its strong bill.

Gratulálok, nem tűnnek annyira félénknek a városi madarak:) Itt lassan tavaszodik, egyre többet süt a nap is, ezeket a napokat próbálom kihasználni. Szép tavaszt kívánok!

Hello Szabo.
Fantastic shot of this cute Nuthatch with a catch. Very impressive sharpness and colours on its plumage. Superb lighting, exposure and focus. I like the wood on which it sits and the structure.
Best regards Siggi
