White-breasted Nuthatch, HomeWhite-breasted Nuthatch, Home

Post one nor'easter and in advance, no doubt, of the next one, I filled the bird feeder and tried to keep the squirrels at bay. (Yes, I know... good luck on that front.) Very quickly, the birds came in droves, and I was happy to discover that, yes indeed, I could hand-hold the Sigma supertelephoto steady enough to get portraits of all the freeloaders. While there's no one special—or, rather, rare, since, in all honesty, each visitor is truly special—visiting the splendid sunflower-seed table, it's a great joy to "capture" them, and this shot of a White-breasted Nuthatch in the act of sailing off with a tasty appetizer is among the most special of all.
