Deb said...

Your photos & comments are the BEST! Have a great weekend Shelley.

Sunny said...

I love chickadees, I have had them eat out of my hand.
Lovely pictures.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

We still have tons of Chickadees, Tufted Titmice and Nuthatches at our feeders. I've neglected taking their picture lately --since I had done so many before. I love them all though.

Great photos.
Hugs,
Betsy

They both look very intent on whatever is down below. I think you're right about "Look out below!" Lovely photos of two adorable birds.

How funny....I kept thinking this looks like 2 different types of birds. I kept looking back and forth, then I saw your tags and see I was right. Both great for your title. Hope you two are enjoying the cabin this weekend so you can show us your loons. They seem to be avoiding the camera this year.

Two of my favorite birds! The Nuthatches are so darned comical. They're at my peanut feeder on the deck all the time .. hanging upside down, spreading their wings, lying down, and just basically trying to be bullies but they aren't very successful! I just love em!

Awwww! I love those little butterballs. Sharon

Kelly said...

Ahhhh...two of my favorite birds. Lovely photos--looks like they have dropped something below!! :-)

Shelley, we seem to have many of the same birds, and we live so very far apart. Your photography is amazing. The expressions you catch on the bird faces and in their eyes goes beyond the average.

Have you ever posted any tutorials on this?

Jayne said...

LOL Shelley! Love both the little black and white beauties!

JKoenig said...

Those are two of our regulars around here. As usual, your pictures are always great!

Great captures Shelley! I love the Nuthatch, they have the funniest little bird feeties :)

Ginnymo said...

Great photos of those pretty little birds. I haven't seen any Black-Capped Chickadees this summer. They are probably somewhere near water. I do see my Nuthatch now and then and yesterday my Tufted Titmouse was here for a minute. Haven't seen him around much either. Now it's getting very hot and I feel sorry for them if they can't find water. But I'm sure there is a neighbor close by that has a bird bath. I keep water on the ground every day for the other critters but the birds don't use it. Maybe the Bluejays now and then.
Have a nice weekend Shelly!

Geronimo!!!!

Montanagirl said...

Great shots! We have both those in our backyard.

Cathy Clementz said...

If it weren't for the hummingbirds and mourning doves (and a few jays) we wouldn't be seeing many birds in our yard. I don't know where they all have gone!! Kind of scary! The photos are very good; shows them in their "comical mood"!

Ms. ~K said...

I love the black and white formal wear of the chickadee and nuthatch!
Hope you weren't "Below!"
Great shots,
Kit

Chris said...

HI Shelley,
Excellent. it looks like there was something quite interesting down there....
We have the red-breasted nuthatch in Europe but not the white one.

Knatolee said...

What a lovely pair.

Daisy said...

Aw...he's such a cute little guy. :)

Hope you are having a good weekend, Shelley.

Deborah Godin said...

We're they both looking at the same thing?!

Bird Girl said...

"Look out below! It's Shelley with that darn camera again!" Haha! Cute!

My nuthatches won't sit still for a picture. Grrrr.

I Like the great photos and writeups.

Nuthatches are a favorite.

I am back blogging again.
I just started a new WordPress Blog, 'I C U Nature' for Nature Only!
Click here to see the blog.
It will take some learning to work out the differences between WordPress and Blogspot.
The new blog is bare bones right now, with just the masthead and two posts.

Come visit and tell me what you think,
