Today I met my friend Nigel over at Claireville Conservation Area for a late afternoon walk. We found a couple of bird feeders nestled into some trees on a side path so we stopped to take a few photographs.


The Chickadees are always around the feeders so it was nice to be visited by the Red-breasted Nuthatch. We even got them to feed on our hands. It’s always a nice feeling when a bird trusts you enough to land on your hand.

I think I took at least 100 photos here. There was so much activity and with them flitting in and out of the feeders, a lot of those images went straight to the trash. Luckily, I had a few keepers from the visit.
