Curiousity of the Nuthatch

Wow---you get such great pictures, Shelley. We have nuthatches also--and they are gorgeous!

Love that photo. I like how you can see his perfect tail feather.

What is it you have in the feeder? I don't think I have ever seen those before?

Eve said...

I love the quote Shelley...it's perfect and so great that it's true!

Jayne said...

What a great angle you captured there Shelley!

Shelly,
You capture the most interesting compositions! This picture is REALLY nice...and the quote was perfect. Sometimes I think some birds are as curious as cats!! I've seen them being quite curious about something I might have put out on our deck..hopping around it, on it..just plain checking it out and your quote is so right..there is no cure!!

That does look like curiosity on the little face! Great Parket, quote, too. I'm a big fan of her murmurs"!

I came back here to take another look at your feeder because I am looking to buy more this week and I realize I said perfect tail feather instead of feathers. I meant feathers obviously. No I wasn't scrunching my eyes onto the computer screen in search of a perfect tail feather. Even if I wanted to I don't think I could do it given my eye site. ;o)

I guess I shouldn't comment on anyones blog until I have had my first cup of coffee. Even spell check didn't help that one. HA
