White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) information:
A common feeder bird with clean black, gray, and white markings, White-breasted Nuthatches are active, agile little birds with an appetite for insects and large, meaty seeds.

White-breasted Nuthatches may be small but their voices are loud, and often their insistent nasal yammering will lead you
