Again with the Red-breasted Nuthatch
Red-breasted Nuthatch, Kennebunk, Maine, USA — I put my chair blind out the other day for an hour or so in the late afternoon. It was the day before the storm got to us and we had a lot of bird activity around the feeders. The Red-breasted Nuthatch had pretty much single-handedly emptied the sunflower feeder and flew off with the seeds. I suspect the bird was storing them somewhere…no eating them. Still a very attractive little bandit. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Even though the light was still good, it is deeply shaded under the trees, so ISO 2500 @ f4 @ 1/500. Processed in Polarr and Apple Photos, with some extra masking for noise.
