This specie is new for me. Excellent presented!
Thanks for sharing
Not even remotely related to Nuthatches. An example of convergent evolution of not related species.
Now usually placed within own family (Neosittinae). The latest DNA evidence places them as being related to Melanocharitidae (Longbills, and Berrypeckers), a family restricted to New Guinea.
