  1. white-breasted nuthatch

    The white-breasted nuthatch (Sitta Carolinensis) is a small songbird in the nuthatch family, native to North America. Characterized by its ash-gray blue back, a snow-white face and underparts, a black cap, and a chestnut lower belly, it can climb headfirst down tree trunks, looking for insects in the bark. This bird also has a long, pointed bill and strong feet to help in its distinctive means of foraging. It primarily eats insects, but will also eat seeds and nuts, storing them in tree bark for later use.


  1. White-breasted Nuthatch

    The White-breasted Nuthatch 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. Seeds form a substantial part of its winter diet, as do acorns and hickory nuts that were stored by the bird in the fall. The nest is in a hole in a tree, and the breeding pair may smear insects around the entrance as a deterrent to squirrels. Adults and young may be killed by hawks, owls and snakes, and forest clearance may lead to local habitat loss, but this is a common species with no major conservation concerns over most of its range.
