Titmice and Nuthatches

I briefly contemplated titling today's post "Tits and Nuts" to see if it would improve my blog's hit count, but ultimately decided I really didn't feel like getting a bunch of angry emails accusing me of false advertising...

At any rate, I took all of these shots within a span of about 20 minutes this morning; thankfully, the birds decided to have their breakfast before I'd started mine, so for once I didn't end up slurping down soggy cereal.

Starting things off, a White-breasted Nuthatch scores a pistachio:

You almost expect to see some tumbleweeds roll along between them:

Some nuthatch vs. titmouse action shots:

And to close today's post out, a couple of Titmouse close-ups:

  1. Lovely photos, Sara, and thank you for reminding me that I do have things to be thankful for, like you, dear friend, and your art.

    Anne, it's being One of Those Days
