White-breasted Nuthatch

Species Details

This low-key resident, once known as the “devil-down bird”, can be seen working its way down tree trunks head-first, prying it’s thin, sharp bill into bark crevices searching for small insects. Its song is a distinct nasal “yank-yank”. It nests in natural cavities, and occasionally uses bluebird boxes.
