Squirrel Chatter, just ramblings and rants from the Great Alaskan Red Squirrel Cam on the road across America. Looking for nuts.
That's a pretty little bird for sure. And a great shot of him.Different from our version with white faces and no buff color.
Sandy,According to my Stokes Field Guide to birds there is two types of Nuthatchs. The ones we have here are Red-breasted Nuthatch and there is White-breasted Nuthatch. Looking at the distribution map, your most likely seeing the White-breasted ones in your area.
What a great photo! I live just east of Sandy and we get a couple of red breasted nuthatches in the late fall and winter. Don't really see them the rest of the year. They are beautiful.
