|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Eurasian Nuthatch (Sitta europaea) is a small passerine found throughout temperate Europe and Asia. It belongs to the nuthatch family Sittidae. This bird is the most common and most widespread of all nuthatches, and is often referred to just as the Nuthatch in Europe.|
The Eurasian Nuthatch is 14 cm (5.5 in) long and has the typical nuthatch big head, short tail and powerful bill and feet. It is blue-grey above, with a black eyestripe. Asian and north European birds (S. e. asiatica and S. e. europaea respectively) are white below except for chestnut in the vent area. The western European S. e. caesia has generally reddish underparts. Young birds are "washed out" versions of the adults.

Great shot of this nuthatch in superb sharpness and details. Snow in background has highlighted this little fellow beautifully. Well done and thanks for sharing,
