Awwww..cutie pie. Look at those eyes. I get nuthatch but never the red-breasted ones. What awesome capture you did. They fly so fast. How did you get to capture these so awesomely?

I love red-breasted nuthatches! We had one spend the winter with us last year. I was hoping it would return.

Splendid little bird - and very high quality bird feeders as well!

I hope to see some nuthatches for the first time in a long while later this year.
