White-breasted Nuthatch

My year list is now at 21 species and this White-breasted Nuthatch is the 11th species photographed. This year will probably not be a banner one for my bird-list. Our attention is diverted by the stress of relocating to Olympia. But still I have an eye on the bird-feeder. Nuthatches are among my most frequently seen birds, so I was glad to add it to my 2019 image list. Note that this bird is an old friend. He is banded on his left leg. Not enough numbers are visible to tell when he was banded, but a left-footed band is evidence that he is one of my birds.
