Well a nut is much better than a worm in my mind! HA! Great shot, Shelley! :D

Great shot, Shelley. Gotta love those Nuthatches!

A New England Life said...

And a good sized nut at that!

Chris said...

Fantastic shot of the nuthatch!! It is so nice to think that such a beauty can come in your garden!

The Early Birder said...

Great shot and certainly easier than struggling with a wriggly worm. FAB.

Ginnymo said...

Hi Shelly! I just love those cute Nuthatches! Great close up of him!

bennie and patsy said...

If I did that the old Blue Jays would go NUTS the little nuthatche would not get even one. LOL

Hi Shelley,
Great shot! You must love your little birds...giving them shelled peanuts!! Bet they love you, too!

Cathy Clementz said...

OK, NOW I'm missing da U.P.and all the birds we would feed!! Nice shot. Hope you are doing well!

These actually work pretty good. I have two older ones that they squirrels manage to get a peanut from time to time.

You always have the most vivid photos of your bird friends - really a cute picture!

Ms. ~K said...

I always look forward to your posts!!!
Great shot of the Nuthatch... I wonder if they get a headache from always being upside down-chuckle!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Cute one, Shelley... The Nuthatches love the nuts, don't they???? I can put out a bunch of nuts---and that nuthatch will go back and forth and back and forth over and over taking the nuts to his stash somewhere... They are just so cute.

Great picture.
Hugs,
Betsy

And sometimes the early nut gets a photo of the bird :-) Great shot!

Very nice!

Sandy said...

What a nut!

Kelly said...

...lovely capture of this sweetie. They are always a favorite. How is school coming? Are you still taking classes?

Deb said...

Fabulous capture Shelley! There are rarely any peanuts left for the birds once the squirrels spot them in our garden :-)

I love the heading.
The squirrel normally has ours. x x x

Beautiful shot!

Tina said...

Hi Shelley,
Great shot of the nuthatch..looks like he loves that neat feeder!!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I just love nuthatches. How can you not love something that approaches things differently--it's so refreshing to me to see them perch head-down like that.

I love your photos, Shelley!

I actually wanted to ask if you would be willing to be a tour host (read and review) for Flyaway, about a woman who rehabilitates wild birds. There's more information here: http://tlcbooktours.com/2010/02/suzie-gilbert-author-of-flyaway-on-tour-marchapril-2010/. And if you're interested, just email me at trish(dot)browning(at)gmail.

I really should get a peanut feeder Shelley. Love it!
