Class Clown

Class Clown.

After watching the feeders for a while I have noticed that apparently even birds have class clowns and trouble makers. The White-breasted Nuthatch appears to be the class clown. They seem to scoot everywhere in the opposite direction. The other birds move up, it moves down. Constantly chattering as it goes. Even Evelyn gets a chuckle watching the antics of all the birds at the feeders. She is still insisting that I install an air traffic control tower.

    I sure hope you are going to enter some bird shots in the GNPA open Wildlife exhibition at Fernbank! They are wonderful! Mikki Root Dillon

    Thanks for the kind words. I haven’t thought about entering any into the exhibition, but maybe I should. Can they be entered without being in the competition?
