I discovered these Red-breasted Nuthatches which we don't often see this far south in Iowa City, are very tame. In spite of the below zero temps these past few days, without too much time exposing my bare hand, this little fellow hopped right on and nibbled away. We repeated this little dance over the past few days and we both seem to have enjoyed it. I used my little CANON PowerShot, so quality isn't the greatest, but considering what I was photographing, I was pleased.

Cool shot!

The Nuthatches and Chickadees at Elizabeth Morton NWR on L.I. are tame like that. (At least when I left in '05}
