Eurasian Nuthatch

Our guide Bernard had an uncanny ability to spot birds that could hardly be seen. One was a Eurasian nuthatch that was flitting around in a large tree. I was looking and looking for movement and when I finally saw it I couldn't get the lens to focus on it. I took about 20 photos and only one was in focus, the one below. 
It was in the Sado Estuary, south of Lisbon, Portugal, perhaps an eighth of a mile from the water. There are about 20 subspecies and I was glad to get at least one decent photo.

  1. Great photo of a moving target far away. It's a very cute little bird.
