White-breasted Nuthatch is a small song bird of the nuthatch/creeper family. It is a stocky bird, with a large head, short tail, powerful bill and strong feet. Seeds form a substantial part of its winter diet, thus it is a frequent visitor to my feeder. Nuthatches talk a lot,a sort of grunting chatter. I photograph from a blind about 7 feet away ,and even with my bad hearing I can still hear the chatter. Has a tendency to go down a tree head first.
