The White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) is a small songbird of the nuthatch family which breeds in old-growth woodland across much of temperate North America. The breeding habitat of the White-breasted Nuthatch is woodland across North America, from southern Canada to northern Florida and southern Mexico.

    We feed these with our cardinal black sunflower seed feeders. They are very agile even feeding upside down.. They whack the seed on a tree limb to crack the shell and on the seed

Rose Breasted Grosbeak - I prefer to nest in trees or brush at edge of properties in the forks of tees.

Red breasted nuthatch. Sadly, I have found feathers of these - seems to be a favourite of the hawks around here. You often see them singly or in pairs moving upside down down a trunk.

White-breasted Nuthatch. Love the way they climb up tree trunks

The nuthatches constitute a genus, Sitta, of small passerine birds belonging to the family Sittidae. Characterised by large heads, short tails, and powerful bills and feet, nuthatches advertise their territory using loud, simple songs. Most species exhibit grey or bluish upperparts and a black eye stripe. Most nuthatches breed in the temperate or montane woodlands of the Northern Hemisphere, although two species have adapted to rocky habitats in the warmer and drier regions of Eurasia.
