Regardless of how often I see these perky little birds running up and down trees, when I have the camera ready I’m always clicking away hoping for a better pose or a better background or better lighting than what I already have.
This shot bathed in the warm light of the evening sun with the reds and greens of poke weed for a background makes this one of my favorite captures of the White-breasted Nuthatch.
Our drought has finally been broken with a cold rain that has been falling for the past three days. Temperatures have hovered from the mid to upper 30’s F making this feel more like late November than mid October.
