Saturday Critters ~ 122 ~

I had a lot of fun photographing this
White Breasted Nuthatch.
The dark black crown on the top of it's head, 
tells me it is a male.
And although I have read that they prefer sunflower seeds and suet, 
he sure was interested in the peanuts I had out for the other birds.
One interesting fact about this bird, 
it is the only bird that can climb headfirst down a tree trunk.







I could not pick a favorite image, so you get to see them all!
