White-Breasted Nuthatch

Published January 25th, 2012

One of the other bird types I caught over the weekend. There was probably twenty of these at my feeder over the hour or two I was watching.



The White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) is a small songbird of the nuthatch family which breeds in old-growth woodland across much of temperate North America. It is a stocky bird, with a large head, short tail, powerful bill and strong feet. The upperparts are pale blue-gray, and the face and underparts are white. It has a black cap and a chestnut lower belly. The nine subspecies differ mainly in the color of the body plumage.

Like other nuthatches, the White-breasted Nuthatch forages for insects on trunks and branches, and is able to move head-first down trees. - http://btl.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Birds/G0000siiiKQWB5KU/I0000Ajg43L3nK0o
