White-Breasted Nuthatch

The largest and most common nuthatch, the White-breasted has no eye stripe and little coloration on its underparts. Even so it is a very pretty bird, and observing their behavior is always a treat. It is very remarkable to see them perch upside down on a tree, though difficult to photograph, and their spiffy little red spandex shorts of some of the more fashionable undergarments in the avian kingdom.
