For the past couple of weeks, I've had a pair of Red-breasted Nuthatches frequent my feeders. This is the first time that I see both together (I usually only get one at a time). At least one of them is not too shy. He will often fly right next to me either when I am on my deck or replacing the feeders.

These guys make an umbrella with their wings to shade the waster below. Then they put their head under the umbrella to allow them to see in the water better. They do it every few seconds and I was lucky enough to catch it
Picture done in the beginning of this year, but I didn't remember I had such a weather (and such pictures)... Ho gods, that is strange to visit some pictures folders and finding some pictures I like... without knowing I made it
