White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis)
I love these well-mannered guys! Even in summer we fill our peanut feeder for them - and also for red-breasted nuthatches, and downy and hairy woodpeckers.
With a sunflower seed
This time of year white-breasted nuthatches often hang around with chickadees. There's safety in numbers plus chickadees are clever at finding where food is, which makes it easier for their nuthatch buddies.
Found a peanut
I am connecting to Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE
These are gorgeous pictures!
Wish I could do that also :))
Have a beautiful day
The beak seems so long relative to the size of this gorgeous little character.
Beautiful captures of these cute birds.
I love the sweet Nuthatch! Great captures and post. Have a happy day!
you always capture so much detail in your photos. Thank you again for sharing.
The little nuthatches have such long beaks.. all the better to use the bird feeders :) lovely shots of these wee sweeties Tina.
Great shots of beautiful birds. I like seeing them getting some food in the snow.
I'm always amazed how they can just walk on the tips of their claws. Its back is close in color to the bluish grey of the Canadian Nuthatch here, but the rusty color is just on its underparts. Cute! I like the intrepid pose of the first bird.
Oh I just LOVE these little birds! Great captures!
I've almost always seen them travelling with little flocks of Chickadees.
I like them too, and I too have always seen them around chickadees.
the size of the claws just amaze me.. no wonder they can hold on in the high winds.
Wow, wonderful pics !
Such a beautiful series of photos of this cute little fellow!
Perfect photos of this beautiful bird.
I never knew that, a simbiotoc relationship. Your photos are super EG.
so very cute. have only seen them a time or two here!
What an adorable little guy! fabulous photos!!
Such a handsome dude!
Even in winter and snow , you can find a lot of lovely different guys !
What a beak that bird has! I like how you captured the drama of the nuthatch with seed.
Beautiful captures with the nuthatches! And nice that chickadees finding helps other birds in feeding.
Nice shots! That bird has a long beak and big feet. I like how you captured the birds with food in their beaks.
They are such lovely little birds! Great photos.
We have both at our feeders and I am partial to the chickadees. I've never got a picture of either with a seed in the beak. Well caught.
These beautiful birds are smakoszmi peanut see. Regards.
Oh, these are such cute little ones! And, as always, your captures are superb and, as always, I love all the detail that I would never be able to see otherwise!! Hope your week is off to a great start! Enjoy!
A cracking little bird.
such a pretty little bird!
I love the Nut Hatch ... mine hang with the Chicadees as well, but no need to find the food. They spend the day at my feeders and they nest in the trees on my shore. They are comical little characters and like the Chicadee, bordering on freindly. These are great pictures ... Hope your week is off to a good start.

We have both types of nuthatches in the garden They are so much fun to watch with their upside down antics at the feeders.
Super images E.G.
Great photos of the Nuthatch and I really like the captures of the ones with the peanut in its bill.
Super captures of these sweet birds.
These pictures are SO perfect! It looks like you got him to pose for you by bribing him with peanuts! He is so cute! We have a few here, and they do indeed hang out with the chickadees! I love the way they walk down the trees upside down! I have not seen one in quite awhile, so am enjoying these pictures immensely!

More pics suitable for your bird book, EG! If you ever do one! ;-))
Oh ... the third photo is so cute !
Aww they are very cute. I wish I have them closeby.
One of my very favorite birds---well I have many favorites but I do like the Nuthatches. We just have the Red-breasted here.
Caught in the act, all of them! Excellent images, as always...
you show these valiant little birds so well
Fantastic pictures of the Nuthatch.
Wonderful images, EG. I love to watch them, too.
Fantastic shots of the Nuthatch! I'm sitting here green with envy since I have never seen one here, though I know we have them. How interesting that different species band together for safety.
What a cute little thing! Love your shots.
What a cutie! I love seeing them in the snow.
Wonderful stuff especially with that background of snow
What a beautiful bird!! xx
I love them too. They sure do pretty up a winter's day, eh?
Fantastic shots of the nuthatch. I have a lot of them here but they are so fast I rarely get good shots.
These are wonderful!
Excellent shots of a very handsome bird!
Wow, superb captures EG! Splendid!
What a sweet little thing.
Superb images of this bird.
Nice pictures ;-)

Sweet hungry little bird!
The Canadian Audubon.
