Look At ME!

Hey you! Yeah, you! Look at ME! I am the man! The big cheese! King of the Peanut Feeder, and don't you forget it!


How dare you take pictures of me with lines across my face. It's rude and unprofessional. And you call yourself a member of the Bird Stalkarazzi? Hah!


You see this nut? I worked hard to get this nut. Again, the least you could do is take a decent picture of me! This is a prize winning nut!




Everyone! Look at my nut!!! This is the best nut in the whole bunch and it's mine! All MINE!!!




Lookie here you ... you see this nut? Get one centimeter closer and I'll bump you right off this railing. Don't think I won't do it because I will! If I splay my wings out you better head for the hills! And don't be taking all the nuts from the feeder while I'm gone either!



And you think I'M crazy!!!

LOL Sharon, you made me almost choke on my PB&J sandwich with your last line!!

I loved the narrative behind it and all of your fantastic photos. The last one with the two nuthathces is priceless and I absolutely love the first one and how in sync the nuthatch is with the feeder.

BTW: My word verification is oifed! HA!! Blogger has been coming out w/ some very weird word verifications latley. LOL

I had better things to post and a few of the pictures aren't that great, but ever since we bought the peanut feeder the Nuthatches are acting like nuts! They can be quite protective and dominant. The other day one of them kept splaying his wings out and waddling back and forth. I tried to get a picture but it was too late. I had no idea they were such clowns!

And that Red Squirrel was just waiting his turn! If you look at the peanut feeder it's all crooked and dented from the squirrels knocking it on the ground : /

The nuthatches talk to me here too Sharon! :c) Sharon, the bird whisperer.

White-breasted nuthatches are my favourite! They're so quirky with their upside-down movements.
You have captured them so well. I do love visiting here - your photographs are always a delight.

Funny and beautiful post. The pictures are superb! I love your new header. You could really put together a beautiful calendar of gorgeous New England.
Aren't birds funny to watch wround food? I wish I could capture the little fights I watch daily out my window! :-)
