These little birds have been coming out every mid morning at Lake Almanor for the past few days. Northern California, they flutter around and bathe in the dew of the pine trees. So darn cute. My first guess is a Pygmy Nuthatch they do fly upside down and all around. Thanks

This is a Mountain Chickadee. A Pygmy Nuthatch won't have the white above the eye, has a longer, slender bill, and a shorter tail, as well as other differences in coloration. Nice photo!!
