Red-breasted Nuthatch

Magee Marsh, Crane Creek, BWIAB, Ohio, Birding

I took this photo with a 7D Mark II camera and 100-400 lens I borrowed from the Canon folks at their booth at the entrance to Magee Marsh during BWIAB. I loved the camera and lens, though at my age, not sure I want to carry it around all day! As you may have noticed, the series of photos of my trip to Washington D.C. has finished, as now I will likely be featuring photos of the birds I photographed at the Magee Marsh boardwalk, etc.  The Red-breasted Nuthatch was a lifer for me, meaning in Birdwatcher language, the first time you saw it in your life!

Photo taken at the Blue Mountain exit on Pa Turnpike (I-76). We stopped for the night at a motel, and woke up to this scene!!! My passengers thought they recognized the red farm building, so they walked over, and, lo and behold, it was a cousin, they hadn’t seen for some time!
