White Breasted Nuthatch info
Description
This sparrow-sized bird is blue-gray on top and white underneath, with a solid black cap. The short, stubby tail has a white stripe through it. This “upside down” bird is easily identified as it creeps headfirst down a tree trunk.
Habitat and Habits
The nuthatch inhabits all manner of woodlands; even parks and neighborhoods with plenty of trees. The song is a nasal yank, yank.
Reproduction and Care of the Young
The nest is in a natural tree cavity (possibly excavated by the nuthatch itself) or a nesting box and contains five to six lightly speckled white eggs.
