White Breasted Nuthatch

I am linking my White Breasted Nuthatch up with World Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

The White Breasted Nuthatch is one of my year round birds, they often come to my feeders grab a seed and fly off. The White Breasted Nuthatch is a pale Blue above with a slightly darker crown.

The White Breasted Nuthatch is seen in mature oak forests but it prefers pine forest. Most will remain in pairs year round.



They are fun birds to watch as they crawl all around the trees, similiar to how the Tree Creeper can go all around and upside down. I am hoping to see the Red Breasted Nuthatch at my feeders this winter.

I hope you love my cute White Breasted Nuthatch and to see
more beautiful birds check out Springman's World Bird Wednesday  and for more
nature scenes please visit Michelle's Nature Notes.  Thanks to both Springman and to Michelle for hosting these fun memes.

Also, thank you for stopping by my blog to see my birds. Happy Birding and have a great week.

Wonderful photos! I see a lot of red-breasted nuthatches here but only rarely the white-breasted ones!

I try to take in all the birds, and the White Breated Nuthatch is certaintly the best, one more for my album, thanks Eileen.

Hi Eileen, These little birds are so comical and fun to watch. They are the acrobatic kings and queens, for sure! I just returned to my home from a long trip out West to see my family back in California where I am originally from. I took a lot of pictures of animals and birds along the way and will post them on my blog in coming days! Have super good days tomorrow and the remainder of the week!

is my eyes luring me or does this one have very large feet?

Hi there - no nuthatches in Australia - but we do have a bird called a Varied Sittella, which is not related to nuthatches, but is almost identical. Same niche – same features. Wonderful.

This is a gorgeous bird, and your shots are fantastic..

Jen said...

Definitely one of my favorite birds to watch!! Thanks for sharing your great photos!

Ebie said...

No one will be lonely, if they fly in pairs!

Hilke Breder said...

Nice shots, Eileen! I call it the "perpetual motion bird"- it never seems to stop moving.

mick said...

Beautiful coloring on that little bird and it would be fun to watch it on the trees.

These guys are quite busy here as well, flying back and forth from my feeders. I love it when they stop and pose.

Jean said...

They are fun birds to watch. It is funny that I don't have them visit my feeders...but I see them when I visit my daughter who lives 10 mins from downtown Atlanta.
Nice photos of the cutie!

Springman said...

I love the nuthatch too Eileen. We are grateful all winter long for their upside down company!

They are lovely birds and move so quickly they're not easy to photograph! I just read that they stockpile seeds for the winter by hiding them under strips of loose bark.

Carver said...

I love the little nuthatches that live in my yard. Great shots. They move so fast it's not easy for me to photograph them.

Lovely little bird, another I've never seen before.

phylliso said...

Crafty Green Poet said...

lovely photos. (The European nuthatch is just starting to get as far north as Scotland....)

Arija said...

Your little nuthatch really is a cutie! Nice shots.

Mike B. @ slugyard.com said...

Red-breasted nuthatches are regulars at our bird feeder, but we don't see the white ones too often.

Rambling Woods said...

I LOVE the little nutties and mine are carting off BOSS so fast to cache it for the winter...Michelle

SquirrelQueen said...

They are so cute. I'll bet they are fun to watch. I don't think we have them here.

squirrel said...

I love these little guys. They make me think of Bob Hope with those long beaks that look like ski jumps. His nose was like that as well. In the winter they fuss at me if I forget to leave out meal worms. Fun Birds. Thanks for spotlighting them.
