Red-breasted Nuthatches fly in for some seeds!

This December I noticed some new birds at the feeders.  They were very quick taking a sunflower seed from the tube feeder and then flying away, unlike a house finch that would sit at the feeder and eat seed for several minutes.  Today I was able to take a few pictures from the kitchen window and identify the them as Red-breasted Nuthatches.

The Red-breasted Nuthatches would fly back and forth from the feeder very quickly, unlike the house finches that would sit at the feeders and look at me.
