Say What?

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.
