  1. That first picture makes Albert look like he's been at the feeder too long but then his side shots show him in a more favorable light....He obviously loves the meals you serve him as he is so quick to post just as you ask.....

  4. Lovely shots of the cute Nuthatch. I am having a little trouble reading the print due the the white background and the light colored text. Thanks for sharing your WBW! Have a great day!

  6. Nice bird - my father was called Albert! I dont think he would have minded a nuthatch sharing his name.

    Very nice bird.

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

  12. We don't have Brown Headed Nut Hatches in our neighborhood, but we do have the White-Breasted Nut Hatch and I am guessing they all have the same comical, quirky personalities. We so enjoy their funny little conversaions amonst themselves and even,sometimes, with us. Very cute and clever series ...

  15. Very nice series of Albert! I love chasing Nuthatches as they scurry around and around tree trunks. Glad he sat still for you to get these quality photos!
