White-tailed Nuthatch

On a sunny but cool day, I photographed this White-breasted Nuthatch along one of the trails in the north-east end of Peace Valley park. Since the Nuthatch spent almost all the time hopping about (upside down) the base of this tree, I initially thought it was chick woodpecker unable to fly. It was only later, after referring to my trusty app that I got informed otherwise.

Despite having a clear shot at the bird I feel I messed the exposure up. Because of way I exposed it to the highlights, I ended up having to lift the shadows up way too much. ETTR would have worked better.
