|[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.

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

Nice to see your images. Remarkable photo and comments. This lovely specie has wonderful natural colors. The contrast against the background is superb. Very nice photo taken from a excellent POV.
