It's nice to share!

This photo made me laugh because the Downy was looking around like he knew someone else was on the feeder and there was the Nuthatch peeking from the other side.

I use to have a feeder similar to this one. This is a very Christmassy photo. Perhaps the nuthatch is coming for Christmas dinner?

Nice photo shelly, I really enjoy the woodpeckers. Can't quite capture one though, it will come soon enough I guess.

Thanks for following my blog and leaving such kind comments!

It's always fun for me to see when there are several species of birds sharing and getting along with one another at one specific moment of time. It's a good feeling.

He wasn't giving it up until he was ready. The Nuthatch was just going to have to wait.

Jenny said...

Hi Shelley, you get such great light in your photos, how do you do that??? That red patch on the male downy looks to me like it's puffed up to warn the nuthatch away. There's enough there to share! (-:

I love how the nut hatch is just peeking over. It is so fun to watch the various birds interact with one another.

Eve said...

Ha Ha! I've seen this silly behavior before!

Birds have not found our feeds yet but as soon as the little gray squirrel that lives in the tree in the back yard fines the sunflower seeds they will.

This photo of the Downy looking the wrong way for the other bird reminds me of our pets. Whenever the 2 cats "fight" our dachshund runs to break them up BUT.......she always runs the wrong way!!!

Shelly: Beautiful capture of the two birds. It is fun when you get this kind of a photo.

Cute! I bet they played hide and seek for awhile...

Deborah Godin said...

Really made me chuckle, too! I guess that's how wary you have to be when you're a bird!

What a beautiful picture! And I echo 'Kathiesbirds' in saying it's such a Christmassy photo, with the thatch of the Downy adding just the right touch of colour :)
