Whtie-breasted Nuthatch, Sitta carolinensis:
Horse Cove; near Gurley, Alabama
Finally, I have a white-breasted nuthatch I am happy with. I shot this image this afternoon at my woodpecker / nuthatch feeder in my back yard. I have been shooting nuthatches for quite a while, but have not been very satisfied with the images I have taken, until this one. it is just about the perfect pose and there seems to be enough detail. However, I will keep shooting, hoping for something better. I did have a great time. Nothing I enjoy better than photographing the birds.
