[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one bird that I rarely see here in my part of Ohio. We have plenty of the White-breasted Nuthatches, but this pretty little species seems to be scarce.

I took this photo last week while visiting my daughter and her family out in Tulsa Oklahoma. It was a very cold day and I was thrilled when this little guy decided to come in and check me out.

Hello Ron,
Outstanding photograph, excellent sharpness, good composition, good background .

Hello Ron

Excellent close-up shot of the Red-breasted Nuthatch,
fine POV and framing, beautiful light coming to the bird,
excellent focus, sharpness, and details,
the catch-light render the photo always more beautiful, TFS


Ciao Ron, great capture of lovely little bird, wonderful colors, splendid sharpness and fine details, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Ron,
I like this wonderful colorful species of birds. Nice composition with great contrast against the background behind. The colors, details and focus are perfect as usual.
Useful photographer note. In my region they are many birds like this guy here called Eurasian Nuthatch. Thanks for sharing this beauty!

Hi Ron,
nice photo of the bird. Excellent point of view. Amazing colours. Very good composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Ron,

The light from the right certainly highlights this little guy. Looks like a really late evening (sun setting) shot. You must be within 10 yards for such details with the 400mm. Nice job. The bicolored beak is interesting as it continues the coloration of the head.


Hello Ron,
Excellent capture with wonderful effect of light,lovely natural colour and an amazing sharpness as well as nice details of plumage.
TFS and my regards,

Hello Ron
a splendid one here. The agile little cute bird is so well presented with details and sharpness. The shiny eye is so pleasant and its surrounding is a framing element to focus the view.
Excellent work.

Merhaba Ron,
Işık ve renkler ve netlik harika..Tebrik ederim, saygılarımla..

Hi Ron
Wow, great capture of this little Red-breasted Nuthatch. I love the lighting, colours, details and especially your close up view. It's great he was still for a moment since they can move around so quickly.
TFS Janice
Happy New Year!

WOW have GOT to love the natural light on this one!! Your "rarely seen" FOUND! We are glad he checked you out too!! So where were you..IN THE TREE???????? :)) did you get a new lens you???!

Hello Ron, dear friend,

Hope you are well, happy new year to you what if belatedly friend.
I owe you many comments, Ron and one more thing I cannot match yours, you write such wonderful and heartfelt comments, candid and sincere. The way your comments from the heart, in the same way your photos also show the candour of your humble heart and your immense love for mother nature. And God has gifted you with photography, rare gift.
This is an amazing shot of this tiny Nuthatch. Top quality shot.Even in flash light, the shot has gained a lot but has lost nothing.The plumage has been beautifully captured and the reflection in the eye which has given you this wonderful eye contact.
Thanks a lot for sharing and I do hope all family members are well.....take care...warm regards/Abid

Hi Ron,
Another great shot from you. The bird is so beautiful that I could not resist a WS. Hope you like it.

Hi Ron.
Super sharp photo. It seems that there was little light. What ISO did you use? What lens?
Here we have a similar species : Sitta europaea
Thanks. Robert
