White Breasted Nuthatches have the odd habit of creeping down tree trunks. This one stopped to survey it’s surrounding. In the process it showed off it’s flexibility by craning it’s neck more than 90 degrees to assess the scene. This photo was taken on a rainy day and you can see a tiny drop of water clinging to the bird’s belly.

Wow, incredible moment you’ve captured. He’s so agile….
Thanks. There’s a pair of nuthatches that nest in my backyard. They have become one of my favorite backyard species to watch.
