Artist's Description

Grand Canyon National Park
500mm Lens

Adult has blue-gray back and wings with subtly paler fringes to edges of inner flight feathers. Tail is short and blue-gray. Cap is brown and nape is mostly brown, but with a prominent whitish spot at rear. Cheeks and throat are white, and underparts are pale overall, but with a faint buff wash to breast and undertail coverts, and gray wash to flanks. JUVENILE Similar to adult, but paler overall and with buff wash to upperpart feathers.

Dimensions Length: 4-5" (10-13 cm)

Habitat: Pine forests…population is declining overall, in part due to inappropriate land management, for example, suppression of natural fires.

Range: Plains, Mid-Atlantic, Texas, Southeast, Florida

Voice: Call is distinctive and almost humorous, being reminiscent of a child’s squeaky toy.

Like other nuthatches, often climbs head-first down tree trunks. Feeds acrobatically, often on slender, outermost branches. Nests in cavities excavated in dead trees. Joins roving mixed-species flocks outside breeding seasons. Sexes are similar.
