Bird Visitors

While having lunch last week, we noticed a new visitor to our backyard tree. Upon investigation, we learned it was a female red-bellied woodpecker! On the tree with her was a white-breasted nuthatch. Using my stealth photography skills (and a quiet back door), I stepped outside to see if I could get a picture of her.
Do you see the nuthatch- under the branch?

The tree of choice in the backyard...

Another look at the nuthatch- nice beak

Hard to see what you are snapping a shot of when you can't look through a view finder...oh that my Digital Rebel was still functioning...
Well here is an image of a red-bellied woodpecker for your enjoyment. Imagine our delight when we realized we'd seen the Mama Bird!
