Wild Bird Wednesday

So, I looked back through my Wild Bird postings...and, didn't see this one.  Doesn't mean I didn't already post it... I could have forgotten to mark it with "label" and it may not have come up in my search.

Seeing as I have pretty much photographed all the little guys that do come around...I am digging up one from my archives... man, that makes it feel oollldddd.... but, it was only from the past summer or fall ....

I thought it was so cute that they were sharing... as not all birds seem to like doing that.  Nobody likes to sit beside a sparrow.  I've taken to calling them the "stinky sparrows" for that very reason.  Or...as somebody else calls little brown guys she can't immediately remember the names of; LBJ ... and no, that is not the 'Lyndon guy'... it means Little Brown Job...... which I thought was so cute; likely the reason I remembered it.  If I like a word, or find it interesting...I remember it.  Like, say, pingueculum ... who would remember that word?  Me.  That's who.  And, especially if my eye guy said it.  I  need to know what is going on.

Sorry, I digress...hahahha..... as is my usual, of course, if you know  me.  I call it round-about thinking..... you know, where one thing leads to another until you forget what the beginning of the conversation was all about and you can't remember how you got on that particular topic at all.... sometimes, a lot of detective thinking later, you do all of a sudden remember what you actually wanted to say, but, by then, the other somebody has gone home, or it is 2:00 am......

Now, where was I ?  oh, yeh..... birds!!

The cute little Black Capped Chickadee and the White Breasted Nuthatch..... the nuthatches always hang upside down like that.  Never seen one upright ...oh, well, one time..on the wall...and I didn't even recognize what it was in that unusual position.

Click on it to see them a bit bigger if you like.                                                                
                                                                                     



















I'm linking this up to Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday.... check out the great birds they have all been seeing and photographing...

Cute! Chickadees don't share with other Chickadees, but they don't seem to mind other birds so much--if they dare approach. We had a Red-breasted Nuthatch one winter, but I've not seen the white ones here. Thanks for sharing this great shot.

So sweet and, yes, they're on their best behaviour.
I had a chuckle at the first part of your post :D)

I'm a bit jealous at your capture...we don't see these beauties in south Texas. Lucky you.

The nuthatches and chickadees share at our feeder and usually our 'nutties' are right side up....could be the type of feeder we have though. Great photo!!

I LOVE nuthatches! I love their little "peep peep" as they work their way up and down a tree.

Wonderful picture. A few summers back we had a nut hatch visiting us. He was the most untidy eater of the lot. He would spread sends every where. But so interesting to watch
