Happy New Year everyone! This marks the first Canon Thursday Pic of 2011. I hope everyone had a great and safe New Year's and I hope no one has already broken their New Year's Resolution. My resolution this year was going to be to eat healthier, or more healthy, but that's unrealistic, so I think since I'm transferring to a bigger university and taking a bigger load of classes, my resolution is to stay on top of things and not to procrastinate, something I'm very good at. Let's hear your New Year's Resolutions. So my photo this week is of a White Breasted Nuthatch (according to my handy dandy Audubon Society Field Guide). These guys along with Downy and Red-Bellied Woodpeckers and many other birds are all over our yard so I decked myself in some of my newly aquired camoflauge clothing from the ever so exciting Bass Pro Shop (Christmas gifts) and sat on a stool with my camera about 12 feet from the tree and feeders. The birds had to see me there, but I think the pattern of sticks and leaves on my clothes gave them some comfort. Anyways, here's the photo. I had to give back the 100-400mm to its rightful owner a couple weeks ago , so its back to the ole 70-200mm, which explains why I was so close to the tree. Oh yeah, just a heads up to everyone, next week I start a new school schedule which requires me to be up at 6am every morning, so the Thursday thread may start a couple hours earlier on Wed. night so I can get to bed at a decent hour. Hope that's okay with everyone.
