BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH

30 Comments

Nuthatches are flighty birds but this one stayed still for a while so I was able to take several photographs. He wasn’t foraging for insects when I photographed him so he remained upright instead of striking the usual sideways or upside down pose. Although considered quite common I rarely see a red-breasted nuthatch and was very pleased to see this one.

  7. You caught a rare moment with this nuthatch not popping around like they ordinarily do. And what a lovely moment to observe this striking bird. Great photo, Belinda.

  10. Lovely portrait! Your post reminds me that this bird has not made my annual count two years straight. He’s a cutie and I miss seeing him at my backyard feeder!

  11. Beautiful…as you mentioned, generally the pictures show the bird in an acrobatic posture 😀
