    Wow!  Beautiful capture Jim.  I love that the bird is set against a dark background so it stand out in a moment of time.

    It’s my understanding that the titmouse is the only bird that can walk downward on a tree trunk.

      Nuthatches do that. I’ve seen titmice hang upside down, but never ‘walk’ down a tree trunk.
