Female white-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta Carolinensis)
Active and agile, nuthatches are often seen traveling upside-down down a trunk or hanging sideways on a feeder. Their name comes from their habit of inserting seeds (or nuts) into tree bark and then banging them with their beaks to "hatch" the tasty insides.
Nuthatches can become quite tame, though a bit more wary of humans than chickadees are.
I am joining Stewart M's Wild Bird Wednesday HERE
Love your cute Nuthatch photos. They are fun birds, I have seen photos of people handfeeding the nuthatches. Thanks for sharing!
Another beautiful bird. You are really good at the bird photos. I enjoy them all.
I love Nuthatches awesome shots. B
Beautiful captures of the Nuthatch. I haven't seen any around here.
I didn't know the origin of the name:-) I love seeing nuthatches on the feeders - such beautiful little birds.
so beautiful and i did not know abut bashing the seeds on the trees, makes perfect sense
That's a beautiful little nutcase...oops, you said "Nuthatch." Well, any bird that beats its head against a tree... :-)
Hope you're doing OK!
This is one of the few birds that stays the winter around here. Always glad to see them.
Hi EG! Re your question on Images: the owl was sitting in a tree but I think it was much bigger than a traditional tree ornament. I really don't know what it was for but I liked the thing!
Those are fantastic shots! Nice job! I'm hoping we see some nuthatches this year. We didn't have any last winter.
lovely! wish we saw more here!
Wow! Neat captures.
The local birds I see in our place is brown and plain. These are colorful and beautiful. Enjoy the rest of the week :)
Ah, at last I see a bird I also have in my garden here in Sweden! Very good shots on this quick little fellow. I think they are fun to look at!
What a cheekily cute little gal!
Great catch, they look like very nimble birds!
What a lovely bird!
Very nice shot ,Nette
I've been surprised how trusting and tame they are. Good shots of this cute one.
They come to our feeders also. I love watching their quirky little movements!!
They are such a fun bird to watch...great pictures!
Great photos of an interesting bird.
That's a new variety of Nuthatch for me. Super shots.
That first shot is quite lovely!
I love to watch these crazy little guys flitter around.

Great shots of a beautiful bird ! Greetings from Liva
That's just cute!
I love nuthatches. The ones that live here are quite shy. They use my nesting boxes in the spring. I see them frequently year round but if they see me they keep their distance.
Wow....you got some great shots!
Any snow in your place? My friend in Alberta says it is terrible there. Reminds me of when I was in Windsor.
What a pretty little bird. :) Great images.
A little beauty!
Lovely, lovely bird!!
What wonderful birds nuthatch are - we dont not get them in Australia. Great pictures.
Thanks for linking to WBW.

One of my favorite birds, and you got some wonderful images!
Lovely photos! Nuthatches (a different species) are just moving into Scotland, so whenever we see one it's a cause of great excitement!
Great shots! They are such cute little birds.
I love the little Nuthatches. They travel around here with the Chickadees. MB
beautiful shots of the nuthatch. :)
Nice images! Love to watch nuthatches climing "down" a tree trunk!
Wonderful captures...I just love these birds.
Interesting beak. I have had a bird visit that I am having trouble identifying. Similar color, but not the beak.
I saw the word nuthatch pop up in my reader earlier in the week and didn't have a chance then to view this, so I've been anxious ever since then to come back and see it. What a beautiful bird, and you've captured the perfect portrait of it!
beautiful capture of a beautiful bird!
