I am not a wildlife photographer but maybe a bigger lens to get more Nuthatch and less background? Could just be me but it seems the subject is kind of small.

That was 600mm. ;) I would like to get closer to him actually. But sometimes I want to show the surrounding habitat as well.

wow, I only get up to 250 at the moment. I know that some birds are pretty fast at leaving when we move toward them. I have read that leaving food out that they eat will put them in the right spot but I don't know how natural that is.

That was actually my first day out with the new lens.
Yes, I know people do that but if depends. If it's in your garden and we're talking about sparrows and tits - that's their natural habitat anyway, so it's fine. But I'm against luring wild animals in the forest. It teaches them to rely on humans which will not always be there and weakens their ability to search for food.

Shows how small these birds are in relation to their environment.
