Red-breasted Nuthatch


This very active little bird is the only North American nuthatch that has an eyestripe and rusty underparts.


The Red-breasted Nuthatch gets a special view of everything, by looking at the world upside down. They are able to descend head downwards on branches and tree trunks.  This is how they search for food.

.... Or, if you are lucky and patient enough, like I was, they will come to your hand!!!!
