White-breasted Nuthatch: Kennebunk, Maine, USA — Even when photographing from my backyard photo blind, I like to catch birds away from the feeders, and I have, of course, set up the feeding station with that in mind…placing the feeders naturally among many perches. The Nuthatches remain a challenge. They rarely perch either on the way into the feeders or on their way out…and if they do they are always way back in and far away (relatively speaking). So I have reason to celebrate every nuthatch caught away from the feeders. 🙂 Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.
