Bird Pic Of The Week

White-breasted Nuthatch

(Sitta carolinensis)

Where: Richmond, VA • Glidewell Rd.

Notes: This bird always brings back fond memories of my childhood. As an early teen, I had built a bird box and placed it high in a Black Walnut tree in our backyard. I put it there so I could see it from my bedroom window on the second floor. Luckily enough, a pair of these little birds adopted that box to raise their next brood. These five inch long birds, with a slightly upturned bill, had seven eggs, which is a normal clutch size for this species. There short, low-pitched nasal calls often compelled me to have my nose pressed against the cool window beside my bed. White-breasted Nuthatches are strong-footed birds that creep over trees and branches, probing into the bark and "hatching" out insects and seed with their pointed bills. Like other nuthatches, they often turn sideways and upside down on vertical surfaces as they forage.
