Red-Breasted Nuthatch

I've come to the conclusion, that this cold spring weather has a few bird species a bit confused!  Normally, one does find 'White-Breasted Nuthatches' darting in and out of our trees.  However, on this cold, damp day, I was lucky enough to snap a shot of this lil' Red-Breasted Nuthatch (Sitta canadensis).  They are usually found further north in the spruce-fir and pine forests!  Apparently the cooler temps and the spruce trees in my yard have halted their travels to a more northern destination!  Hmmm ... perhaps they think they are already there!
