White-breasted Nuthatch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — I have written before about the likelihood that nuthatches and chickadees expend more energy opening a black-oil sunflower seed than they can possibly get from the kernel. It must be a close run thing. Still they persist in prying the seeds open, so either they really like the taste or they do get more out of the effort than they put in. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent.
