2019—Pygmy Nuthatch

Pygmy Nuthatches are tiny, adorable birds that, according to the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology, live almost exclusively in long-needled pine forests and are particularly closely associated with ponderosa pines.  I’m pretty sure this is a Ponderosa Pine and I’m certain this is a Pygmy Nuthatch.  Taken at the Red Canyon Lodge in the Flaming Gorge area of Utah with Nikon D5, 500mm PF lens and 1.4x Teleconverter (700mm).
