Brown-Headed Nuthatches

 A pair of Brown-headed Nuthatches hung around my back yard feeders for several days.  I enjoyed hearing their high-pitched calls which reminded me of my dog's squeaky toys.  I often watched them forage along the pine trees, pecking at crevices between the bark.  They were quite entertaining.  On one occasion I had my cell phone out on the back porch and played a you tube video of a nuthatch calling- within a minute a nuthatch lighted upon the porch railing, seeking out the source of the familiar call.  He was literally within 2 feet of me- I should have thought to have my camera ready!

 Thank you for dropping in and viewing my bird shots.  
May you have a wonderful Wednesday and remaining week!
