Finally, we couldn’t resist this in-flight shot since it shows White-breasted Nuthatch’s white tail bands, a classic mark of nuthatches that we see in our field guide but don’t always see in the field. This bird is making off with a peanut. Alexis Hayes took the photo in Markham, Ontario, on February 17, 2015.
