Monday Red Breasted Nuthatch Blogging

Red Breasted Nuthatch - Sierra Nevada  2015

Saw this small bird during my dayhike coming down from Shadow Lake.

It forages on the trunks and large branches of trees, often descending head first, sometimes catching insects in flight. It eats mainly insects and seeds, especially from conifers. (Wikipedia.)

As I passed by it took a break from foraging to pose for my camera.
