    That little guy is gorgeous!

  4. Beautywhizz says:

    Lovely, is it nuthatch?

  5. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Is it a treecreeper. It looks a bit like our treecreepers here in Ireland though ours are more brown than grey. Cute though:)

    Cute little nuthatch! It is so fun watching them skittle about;-)

  7. The shadow hallow above the bird is a real bonus, frames the bird.

  8. Lovely photo, sweet little guy.

  9. The bird is so cute and I love the texture of the tree. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Jim Ruebush says:

    We enjoy these little fellows at the feeders out back. Their nasal calls are cute.

  11. Oh, what a cute nuthatch! I need the weather to warm up here this week so I can get my bird feeders out – they have been rediscovered in the (very long) unpacking process, and are ready to go!

  12. Laurie Graves says:

    Love that shrewd little face!

    In our upside down world, this one has the right perspective. So do I, as long as I look here.

  16. I love your photography, Eliza! The bark background is perfect…and the little bird looking with anticipation! Great photo! I like your entire idea of it being a WORDLESS Wednesday! Very clever!

  17. Kathy Sturr says:

    How’d you get ’em to look you right in the eye like that? Wonderful personality.

  18. Karen says:

  19. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    Lovely little nuthatch. It is hard to get close enough to them for a decent shot. This is a great shot! Nice, Eliza!

  20. So very sweet and adorable.

  21. dorannrule says:

    What a happy photo! And the little bird is a sweet surprise.

  22. arlingwoman says:

    What a great, great photo! Nuthatches are the handsomest of birds!

  23. Maria F. says:

    I know these! Theyโ€™re always facing down, I wonder if these are antics or some kind of display unique to them.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      As far as I know face down is just their feeding adaptation as they hunt for insects in the bark crevices. They also go over, under and around, as well as up! They wedge seeds in cracks in order to open them. Thus their name.

  24. ladyfi says:

    What a great shot.

  25. Beautiful! Great shot. ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. Ann says:

    you have captured that beady little eye so well!

  27. Val Boyko says:
