Red-breasted Nuthatches - male (upper two images) and female (lower). Gill yard, Franklin Co., MA. Panasonic Lumix FZ7. Pair present virtually daily with regular visits to the nyjer seed feeders. The background gives the impression of being rather frigid but in fact, despite the fresh snow, it was a pleasant spring-like morning with lots of bird song in the surroundings including Northern Cardinal, Eastern Bluebird and House Finch to mention a few.
