White-breasted nuthatch at our feeder

This white-breasted nuthatch is a frequent visitor to one of the bird feeders at our living room window. The bird really enjoys eating sunflower seeds and is very quick but accurate in grabbing each seed, then zooming away again. I have to be prepared with the correct camera settings, especially focus and shutter speed, to get a decent photo. Note its extra big feet, which are perfect for clambering nimbly up and down trees. One of the things I like best about it is its call, which is a rapid series of soft but distinctive wha-wha-wha-wha-wha sounds.
