This one would've been perfect had I not cut off his tail...:wall-an:

I called to them...they came.....seeds helped them stick around. Lol, At one point they were sitting on my camera lens as I was trying to get a shot of a nuthatch!

Thanks Casil....It's tough not to cut off a tail sometimes given the high frequency these guys seem to run at, always moving! Don't even get me started with Chickadees, like octane fueled houseflies!

I hear ya ML...I swear they have ADD! The first little guy with the red branch behind him just sat there quietly watching and studying me without moving for the longest time...it was really neat actually because knowing how they flit around I thought for a second there might be something wrong with him but i guess he was just checking me out. I had fun with them today...they were landing on my camera bag, my camera and my shoulder all waiting for their turn for a seed!
Fearless little buggers for sure...I think that's why I like them so much! :)
I was chasing that silly woodpecker all down 4th streeet trying to get a decent shot of him!
