White-breasted Nuthatch

There haven’t been a lot of birds hanging around lately.  Perhaps because of the hawk I saw the other day, or a neighbor’s cat.  But I liked watching this little Nuthatch go for the suet feeder.  He seems to have a feather duster at the end of his tail!

Blue Jay

Some facts from http://www.allaboutbirds.org/

The black bridle across the face, nape, and throat varies extensively and may help Blue Jays recognize one another.

Blue Jays lower their crests when they are feeding peacefully with family and flock members or tending to nestlings.

The pigment in Blue Jay feathers is melanin, which is brown. The blue color is caused by scattering light through modified cells on the surface of the feather barbs.
