Oblique Attitude

When I’m watching the birds at my recent home in New Jersey it does not take long until I notice the quirky dancing shadows on the oak tree in our backyard.

Accompanied by its nasal call the white-breasted nuthatch moves in entwined turns around the tree trunk.

It is a delight to watch the common small bird climbing the cracks of the tree bark in effortless oblique position or even upside down searching for insects.
