166. Upside Down

The Pygmy Nuthatch is a common bird of the Ponderosa Pine Forest along the front range.  He usually feeds in the crown of a tree or at ends of twigs and branches where it searches for insects and seeds (often times upside down).    He seemed like a friendly and fairly tame guy, he kept an eye on me but didn’t seem to mind me inching towards him.
