White-breasted Nuthatch

The kiss of the sun for pardon
The song of the birds for mirth
One is nearer to God's heart in the garden
Than anywhere else on earth

Dorothy Gurney
1858 - 1952

The Nuthatch is one of my favorite birds - we have them at the feeder all the time - such cute birds. You've done a really nice job of capturing the birds character - especially that distinctive tilt of the head.

Wow, I really like this painting. Makes me wish we had nuthatches here. I like the action implied in your painting. You should definitely keep painting birds!
