Here is another little island friend in winter--the Nuthatch. He loves to hang upside down on the side of a tree--and I obviously interrupted him in mid-peck. This is one tough customer to photograph, as he's always on the move. His favorite trick around here is to grab a sunflower seed, and then fly to a tree trunk to cache it under some loose bark. A snack for later, I guess. If you've ever heard the call of a Nuthatch--you would agree that he is appropriately named--as it sounds as if it came from something that was indeed in a nutty place.
