p.1 #1 · Hairy & White-Breasted


A couple from yesterday (Saturday). Went to a local park and saw some interesting spring behavior from the Downies. Starting to get down to the business pairing up. More vocalizations and flirtatious antics. Unfortunately, I didn't get any images of this.

1. White-breasted Nuthatch





2. Hairy Wookpecker






Comments most welcome.

Ken

Nice shots, Ken.

Are you sure that wasn't a male hairy wp? The beak looks awful long to be a downy, and it appears to have the black shoulder "comma" and solid white outer tail feathers.

Very nice set, Ken.
It's hard to beat the pose of a Nuthatch.

Thank you Koen! The Downie is actually a Hairy. I must have been half asleep when I posted this morning. I had taken mostly Downie pics, but this Hairy climbed up and down this tree trunk in decent light for me.

Many thanks for stopping by and commenting Ted. Appreciated. Nuthatchs are super models, and always seem to give you a good look.

No quibble from me on the ID. Knew it was a Hairy when I took the pic. Why I labelled it as a Downy, that I cannot explain (groggy first thing in the morning perhaps). The Downies were fun to watch (about 6 in the area), but this Hairy just did his normal thing, but did hang out on this stick long enough for me to get a couple of images. Thanks for commenting and keeping me honest.

Thank you Chris. The W-BN's are quite animated with their contortions as they look around and scope out the situation. I would describe them as timidly brave (or at least somewhat tolerant of people).

Classic Nuthatch pose with fine exposure control!
