This little Red-breasted Nuthatch has been coming around from time to time to feed on the suet. I was so pleased the first time it showed up. And have loved every time since. I had seen one only once before last fall, but only glimpses of it as it darted from tree to tree. So to have the chance to get good looks and a few passable pictures was great. They are so dang cute!
Even though this first picture is blurry, I like it, just because it's the first picture I have been able to take of this little, flitty bird.
I was of course very glad when it came back, and stayed a while. At least long enough to enjoy a few nibbles of the suet.
I love watching these little critters, even if it is for short little bursts of time. :)
