Nice photo of the nuthatch, I find they are a lot more skittish than the red breasted.

Love the look on its face. It really does look cranky. LOL

"Henk-henk!!"

It can't be lack of food. Just a bad day at the nest.

Uh oh.. you didn't happen to run out of bird food did you Shelly? ;-)

Mary said...

I think "fat" nuthatch would be more appropriate....you've been feeding him too much! You always have such funny shots and captions...we need that smile each day.

Deborah Godin said...

We'll have to take him out west and introduce him to the Mountain chickadees, they'd have lots to grumble about I'm sure!

NCmountainwoman said...

Great shot. I don't think I've seen a cranky nuthatch before. He is definitely out of sorts.

Sharon said...

Maybe it's the morning after the night before! Poor little nuthatch has a headache.... Sharon

Sandy said...

yeah, he is one cranky bird!

He does look cranky! I think he's upset that there's no Zingerman's in the feeder this morning. :-)

The Retired One said...

He really DOES look like a dude with an attitude, now doesn't he.
All he needed was a pair of horn-rimmed bifocals to look over the tops of in that shot!
Too funny.

Montanagirl said...

Great shot! They're such fun.

Shelly: You must have the most expressive birds in captivity. They are always giving you the best looks.

Daisy said...

He must have gotten up on the wrong side of the nest! HA HA HA! :D

Have a great weekend, Shelley!

That bird looks like it means business, nothing is going to stand between it and the feed.

Jayne said...

LOL... he almost looks hungover! :c)

Nick S said...

Have you ever tried hand-feeding one of those Shelley? The White-breasted Nuthatch will eventually become tame enough and land on your hand.
Takes a little bit of time though :-)

Bren said...

LOVE THIS!!! Wonderful photography once again. Happy SPring

Bird Girl said...

He might be cranky but he sure is cute! Ya got a nice head-on shot there!

Andor Marton said...

That's an excellent portrait ... and what a nice face it has. How can you get so close to these little creatures?

RuthieJ said...

That's a cute picture of a cute bird.

Olde Tyme Marketplace said...

Boy he does look like a little crank doesn't he! Probably woke up on the wrong side of the nest.
