Red-breasted Nuthatch --(Sitta canadensis) (52490 bytes)

Interested in College in Alaska?

Red-breasted Nuthatch
Sitta canadensis

Sometimes the bird would make a preliminary stop on a branch near the suet feeder. I tried to take advantage of this tendency to get a picture in a more natural looking context. It was challenging because the nuthatch did not stay in one place for very long.

Location: Hillcrest Drive, Sitka, Alaska
