The White-breasted Nuthatch

Wildlifewatcher's Blog

This White-breasted Nuthatch was eating at the bird feeder next to my porch with several other little birds.  There are a resident pair of White-breasted Nuthatches that live in one of the large Red Oaks next to the pond here.  They are interesting small birds,  They have a long pointed bill, long sharp claws and a white and grey color scheme.  They chirp a bit and behave in similar ways to the Red-bellied Woodpeckers and the Downy Woodpeckers, but are not woodpeckers themselves.  They use those long claws to help themselves walk up, down, and upside down on the trunks and branches of trees.  They are quite acrobatic.  I took these pictures on Sept. 29, 2012 from my living room window.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
