[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This bird is often seen with Black Capped Chickadees. It has similar behavior and plants seeds under the tree bark as a cache. I found I was able to get more shots of this type of bird if I kept behind the camera so he didn't see my eyes.

White-breasted Nuthatch: Three to ten white to pink eggs, marked with brown, purple and red, are laid in a cup nest made of twigs and grass, lined with bark shreds, hair, and feathers, and built in a natural cavity, knothole, woodpecker hole, or bird box, 10 to 60 feet above ground. Female incubates eggs for about 12 days.

Hello Trevor

I see these birds only in winter in a forest's
bird feeder station, but in spring, summer,
and in autumn sometimes when I am with my
pointing dog in woody areas I heard their song,
beautiful photo of the Nuthatch in his typical pose
with a beautiful lateral light, TFS
