But what is it?

I was poisoned! By a chicken caesar sandwich. Ugh. It's been a nasty ten days, let me tell you. Hence, the no-posting. But now I'm better. And back to stalking birds!

Anyone know what this is? We're stumped. It almost looks like a cross between a nuthatch and a robin, but I don't think that's possible.

Edited to add a profile shot:

I got some new camera toys--a close-up lens and a telephoto lens. I'll post more about them later, I'm sure, but for now...

A macro of a peony:

and relatively long distance shot of a kid (for those who know our backyard, Emma was in the pool and I was on the patio).
