Yin and Yang on the Peanut Feeder

Black-capped chickadee and red-breasted nuthatch during a busy morning feeding time Sunday. We actually saw a pair of the red-breasted nuthatches for the first time today, as well as a pair of downy woodpeckers. I've not seen any of the woodpeckers or nuthatches in pairs before; they've always come singly. 

Usually the RBNs come in and out so quickly it's very hard to get a photo, but this one hung around on the peanut feeder for quite a while. They really are one of my favorite birds.
