In Laporte Colorado there is a lovely little park by the river where a bird watcher can usually find entertainment. Winter is great for the lack of leaves. Trees become sculptures and birds are easy to view.  As he squirreled down trees looking for food the Nuthatch seemed to follow me through the woods. As is often my policy, any bird who is that persistent, risks becoming the subject of a painting.  “Tree Hunt”
