How does such a little bird make such a big noise!  That's what drew our attention immediately upon setting out on our walk in the woods on this frosty morning.

We searched the sky and surrounding trees to locate the sound and finally found our bird at the top of a spruce tree.  The nuthatch called incessantly, first in one direction, then in the other direction.

A pleasant surprise.

(I haven't seen the Red-breasted Nuthatch since the White-breasted Nuthatch arrived here a year ago and decided to stay.)
