Hanging Out In The Cedar Tree

click the pics to enlarge
 

 Red-breasted (looks more orange to me) Nuthatch,
from the window. I was able to open the window to get these pics. This little guy is pretty tame. (I am healing well, and able to get around better now! I went for a short walk down by the river Sunday afternoon. It didn't yield much photo wise, but it was wonderful to be outside!!) Okay... I did get a pretty awesome Canada Goose photo or two, which I will post next week.

  20. Those birds are going to get used to you -- they'll be eating out of your hand before long ;>)...except pretty soon you'll be all better and spring will come and you'll be outside playing again. The nuthatch is so adorable...wonderful pictures.

  41. incredibly clear and ultra sharp pics of a terrific subject!!

  42. I get most of my bird pictures from the back door or windows as well - but none as magnificent as these. (guessing I need to find some birds with poorer hearing skills because they take off as soon as I approach)

    ReplyDelete
