My New Friend

Meet my new friend... The Red Breasted Nuthatch. I've always had the White Breasted at my feeders but never the Red Breasted until this fall. I was so excited to see him a few weeks ago. Best I can tell I have about 3 of them visiting me. I was able to get outside this afternoon and get a few shots of him. I hope he stays around all winter.
We haven't had a very good fall weather wise. Cold and rainy! The nice days we've had have been few and far between. So consequently I haven't been able to get outside with my camera like I want to. In less than two weeks Craig and I are leaving on our long anticipated Eastern Caribbean cruise. I'm so looking forward to warm sunny weather and lots of photos of unusual birds on the islands that I've never seen before. Oh... I can hardly wait.

That's one cute bird. I like the racing stripe on his head.

Nice pictures! We have frequent visits from a white breasted one, but not a red.
