White-breasted Nuthatch

This is a photo of a 
White-breasted Nuthatch.  It's the first
time I've had one visit the feeder on a 
consistent basis...(whoo~hoo)  Once
in awhile a Red-breasted will show up, but 
I haven't been able to capture a picture of 
them together so you can see the difference 
in their sizes and coloring.  The Red-breasted
Nuthatch is about half the size of the
White-breasted.  I LOVE the coloring of the
White-breasted Nuthatch!

Nuthatches make me smile. I love their silly, nasal beeps. How lucky you are to have one visiting your feeder often! Cindy, wishing you and your family a healthy, happy new year!

I love nuthatches, too. I find their coloring soft and appealing.
