What a great shot Ron, lovely deatail and composition. Great use of depth of field. C'mon Ernest, let's have your view on this.


Comment by Ken R on 28th April 2012 at 00:05
Lovely brid Ron, how long did you wait for this one?


Comment by David Barker on 28th April 2012 at 01:29
Spot on Ron ,keep em coming.Nuthatches use natural holes it trees ,sometimes old woodpecker nests they surround the hole with mud so its a perfect fit for their size the female builds the nest of loose wood chips while the male collects food.

Thanks, Ron-- It was getting to be a "long time no birds'! What a cute little fellow. He seems to be about to wonder if he really,really has to share!


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 28th April 2012 at 03:16
Well Brian, You gave us `non -wildlife` lovers on wiganworld a good run - 33 photo`s in fact !! (not classing the swan on 17th April`s photo as `wildlife`).
Excellent photo Ron, you`ll be satisfied - refer your`s and Brian`s comments on last Wednesday`s Photo-a-Day.

Down the hatch another bird enjoying its meal


Comment by dot on 28th April 2012 at 09:15
Love the photo, dont see them in my garden, but wish I did. You can clearly see the length of its claws, and they seem nearly as long as its beak. Love the fact you caught it with something in its beak. Looks like a seed of somekind. Well done.

Comment by john on 28th April 2012 at 10:24

Janice,I sent in my comment before any comments were shown. Would like to know your reaction to my comment?


Comment by Janice on 28th April 2012 at 18:10
Very magnanimous Ernest! Wildlife lover or not - you know (and take) a good picture when you see one.


Comment by Ernest Pyke on 29th April 2012 at 03:22
Thanks Janice. Wonder why there aren`t more comments about Ron`s superb photo? Where`s dirty harry? Syd (Australia) changed his opinion after seeing the swan photo on 17th April. Any idea`s Brian?
