White-breasted Nuthatch with a mouthful

In addition to the birds mentioned in the previous posts that were foraging around the Canon City Riverwalk today, the White-breasted Nuthatche in these pics was among the 4-5 White-breasted Nuthatches I saw there today. It is holding a safflower seed in it's mouth. The pinkish tongue is visible in the top pic. Also interesting in the top pic is how the feathers on it's neck make almost a bib presumably as a result of it's raising it's head up. SeEtta
