Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Birds


I have so many photos of birds it was hard to choose.

But I always liked this little guy. Nuthatches are shy so I loved that he finally trusted me (or got hungry enough) to stop for a treat.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

    • 🙂 It was my left hand…the camera was in my right hand. I had to get the birds used to having something big and black pointed at them while they were in my other hand. In winter they decide it’s worth the risk. Summer? Not so much.


  2. Like this picture! Black and white just provides a different ambiance, and you would rarely think of using it for a bird.

    • Yes, it’s unusual that a nuthatch will come down to my hand. They flutter around when I’m out there, they watch the titmice and the chickadees and the woodpeckers all get treats and they want to get some themselves…and they might fly toward me, but most of the time they pull up before they land. This little guy was either really brave or really hungry.
