30in30 challenge, Day Two

Yeah I did it again, two days in a row and new job to boot.

This little photograph of mine has been a very favorite since the moment I took it.  It was taken out here in Lama, where we live now before we built our Sugar Shack.  This land has been in Len’s family for over 300 hundred years and it’s an amazing place.  The birds would come and land on us and eat out of our hands and this little Pigmy Nuthatch was waiting it’s turn. We got them to do this by feeding them every-time we came up here.

This is a little Pigmy Nuthatch and boy, can they be bossy birds, but beautiful, yes?

    I’ve never heard of a PYGMY nuthatch! What a beautiful little bird! I think the pigeons around here would eat out of my hand if I gave them a chance, but they’re not nearly so cute, and a whole lot messier. I don’t want to encourage them!

    Happy second day of your challenge!

    that gave me a smile first thing this morning. I think it would be like trying to feed the crows out of ours, not a pleasant idea, for sure.
