These little guys are fantastic birds to watch. They scurry up trees, and then do a sort of parachuting to another tree and start their probing all over again. The curved beak gets into the crevices in the bark where they look for insects. The plumage is fantastic camouflage against the trees. They rarely stop still, so it's always tricky getting a shot of them.
This guy is collecting food for some young it had in a nest nearby.
You can see the claws they have to help cling to the trees.
wow, you got some great shots of these fast-moving little ones!ReplyDelete
They are indeed fascinating and fun to watch going up... while Nuthatches make their way down tree trunks.ReplyDelete
Great captures, Adam!
delightful bird and you got some great photographs AdamReplyDelete
These are great little birds - and I can understand how hard it would be to get pictures of them - they are always in motion.ReplyDelete
I banded a few many years ago, the claws look even bigger in the hand, especially for such a small bird.
