notorious look

Velvet Fronted Nuthatch is one of the most difficult bird that I have photographed so far.  This bird is always in constant movement in search of insects that sits  in the bark of trees. It take small quick jumps to either side of the tree trunks and also have the ability to climb upside down of the tree trunks using its strongly clawed toesVelvet Fronted Nuthatch can be easily located if one listens to its repetitious “sit-sit-sit” call. They are found in forests with good tree cover and are often found along with other species in mixed-species foraging flocks
