|White-breasted Nuthatch, Sitta carolinensis:|
Horsecove; Gurley, Alabama
While I was photographing Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers over the past few days this White-breasted Nuthatch flew in numerous times. Usually nuthatches spiral down from the top of a tree to bottom, pointing downward as they hitch down the tree. That was the image I wanted, an upside down nuthatch. But this nuthatch was totally uncooperative. Perhaps in time I’ll get the image I want, but until then I hope you enjoy this shot.
