Don't Play with Me!!!!!

I love White-Breasted Nuthatches. They seem friendly, they take their time eating and it seems they love to "strike a pose". I never have trouble getting great pictures of them....

like this one taken a few weeks ago!!!!!

But today was a different story. This little guy has been playing with me all morning. He won't leave and he won't pose.....I thought you might enjoy the sequence of pictures I took as he "played with me"!!!

I'm here....right behind the suet!!!!

I can do this......how does this work for you
you better be quick!!!!!

and how about this.....

or the beauty of my back.....
do you like this!!!!!

So I'm done playing for today. Even though he thinks he won, I won....I actually ended up loving the shots. And just in case you did not known, nuthatches are the only birds that can climb headfirst down tree trunks. I knew that.....I did not have to look it up!!!!


  1. ha ha! we get them here occasionally and I adore them. drew one once and gave it to my sister...

  2. tex....your drawings are beautiful. you have many gifts!!!!!

  3. Oh, they are one of my fave birds! LOVE these guys!

  4. Fantastic post! I love the White-breasted Nuthatches. They are rather comical with their actions and vocalizations. Great sequence of photos along with the fun narrative. Thanks for the smile :) A joy to visit your wonderful blog!
