Friday at the Feeder

Well this White Breasted Nuthatch just cracked me up.  He was reclining as he gobbled up the seed.  I couldn't help but think of Jesus who apparently reclined at the dinner table as was the custom back in first century Palestine.

Notice the very long hind toe claw, nearly twice the size of his front toe claws.  The Nuthatch has great agility for climbing down trees head first to stash seeds in the bark.

  1. A reclining bird! I'll remember that next spring at the seder table and laugh.
