Feeder Friend

It's taken me a while to get a half-decent shot of this white-breasted nuthatch, who's a rather skittish fellow.

We've got both white and rosy breasted nuthatches here -- and oddly, ours are nearly as brazen as the chickadees. They'll feed while the dogs and I are on the deck where the feeders are. Maybe its a Minnesota thing.

I took a few cruddy photos of a pair of northern flickers and a pileated woodpecker this week. Had to do it moving stealthily inside. They're quite wary.
