Nuthatch.

The forceful 'chuitt .. chuitt .. chuitt' calls of our [Eurasian] Nuthatch (Sitta europaea) have been very loud and far more frequent in recent days so it was great to catch up with one today providing a classic pose.   FAB.

Linking to WORLD BIRD WEDNESDAY.

  1. Beautiful little guy! I've seen nuthatches (when we were in Oregon) but they were drab in comparison. Lovely bird.

  4. It is that classic pose I usually find them in and the curve of the branch made a perfect backdrop. :)
    Nice shot!

  14. That's a wonderful capture, Frank. One could never tire of that classic pose, but your capture with the wood is perfect!
