Lovely brid Ron, how long did you wait for this one?

Spot on Ron ,keep em coming.Nuthatches use natural holes it trees ,sometimes old woodpecker nests they surround the hole with mud so its a perfect fit for their size the female builds the nest of loose wood chips while the male collects food.

Thanks, Ron-- It was getting to be a "long time no birds'! What a cute little fellow. He seems to be about to wonder if he really,really has to share!

Well Brian, You gave us `non -wildlife` lovers on wiganworld a good run - 33 photo`s in fact !! (not classing the swan on 17th April`s photo as `wildlife`).
Excellent photo Ron, you`ll be satisfied - refer your`s and Brian`s comments on last Wednesday`s Photo-a-Day.

Love the photo, dont see them in my garden, but wish I did. You can clearly see the length of its claws, and they seem nearly as long as its beak. Love the fact you caught it with something in its beak. Looks like a seed of somekind. Well done.

Very magnanimous Ernest! Wildlife lover or not - you know (and take) a good picture when you see one.

Thanks Janice. Wonder why there aren`t more comments about Ron`s superb photo? Where`s dirty harry? Syd (Australia) changed his opinion after seeing the swan photo on 17th April. Any idea`s Brian?
