White breasted Nuthatch

I was heading toward balsam popular trees through deep snow to track down Hairy Woodpecker I heard and saw from a distance. It was busy looking for food on one of the tree, several meters above the ground. As I waited and hoped for it to get lower for better pictures, two White Nuthatches came our way. I started to focus on them as they got closer to where I was standing. They were looking for food as well, and I was kept busy taking one picture after another. The light was great and thankfully I was between the  late evening light and the birds. I had to move back, as one got too close for me to focus on. As it grabbed a piece of what I think was a larvae, I grabbed the attached image.


Until next moment,
