All the times I've heard them, and I think this is the first one I've "seen".

CarvingFool Red-breasted Nuthatch

"Funny" story about this one - I had had the White-breasted Nuthatch in the yard for a while, and hadn't really paid close attention. Then I noticed that one's breast seemed a little redder than others, but not nearly as red as the Red-breasted Nuthatch in the guide books. It was really much more buff than red. Then I took a look back through pictures from about a month earlier, and sure enough, my little Red-breasteds had been around for a while! Teaches me to not just assume about the species because one is more common and has been around for a while!

Thank you! I was leaning toward Cooper's, but I still have a hard time telling them apart.

Conor - yay! You'll love it!

Pauline, they were there when I got there. I was looking for the Eastern Towhee, and to see what waterfowl there were. I didn't see them until I had been there for a little while, since I couldn't really see them until I walked up to the closed sign on the bridge.

It was amazing. At first, I thought there were two - the big one, and one little one. It was upon reviewing the first few pictures I could see the second little one's head behind the first one. I was then able to get other angles where they were both showing more clearly.

Thank you Christy and Maria! This is one of my favorite pictures from the Refuge that day.
