[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White cheek patch separates black head and throat. tiny, dark bill, gray back or buff flanks, white underparts.

Voice:call is clear chick a dee dee dee; song is high whistle fee-bee.

They feed on seeds, forage for insects (as this one is doing); they also feed at bird feeders and enjoy suet.

From what I've observed, they tend to be very playful, almost as if playing with the camera. I've named this one creeper..it speaks for itself, yes?

Would've liked to bring it more into focus, but given he was across the street, I took my best shot; I hope you enjoy!

Hello Kathy,
Great capture of the White-breasted Nuthatch. I agree, Creeper is a good name for these little guys. They seem to check out each and every crevice on a tree. I see this guy has found something of interest which is keeping him busy. TFS.

Ha! This shows me why I shall be happy to have you nearby. You have a sharp eye and it is showing well on Kathy!

Hi Kathy
very nice shot for lovely Nuthatch in its characteristic position on tree. Nice focus, POV and composition. thanks for sharing, best wishes
