White Breasted Nuthatch

These pictures were taken on 25th & 26th October 2007 in our back yard. These little guys run up and down trees, many times upside down. They don't migrate and therefore you can see them all year round. They are a little more timid than the Red Breasted Nuthatch which will eat out of your hand, but you can still get quite close to them. The male has a black patch on the top of his head whereas the females head patch is lighter in colour.
