Lovely little bird, i'm going to have to be bias though and say our British Wren is ever so much cuter

Now to try and shoot one! (with a camera that is)

I really like the head-on shot! Aren't they really hard to photograph!

x Sarah x - thanks for checking them out, I looked up the British Wren and the do appear to be very cute

Saly - thanks, I think the head-on shot is best of the series too, they are similar to nuthatches in the way they pop about and can be difficult to capture. This is the first year I can remember them being around where I live, they are year round residents and apparently have been pushing north each season. Since last winter we didn't have a winter I think they figured it was time to move up a little further and I have heard from other people that this pretty little bird has appeared at their feeders too.

Here's a few more from today. Very pleased to have caught it off the feeder waiting it's turn as the downy woodpecker was eating.
