Red-Breasted Nuthatch In Our Yard On Cape Cod


This little Red-breasted Nuthatch has been hanging around our yard for quite a while now. They are a small nuthatch, only 4 1/2″. Their back is steel blue, their chin is white and their underparts are rufous. They are very distinguishable with their black line through their eye.

I love how they climb down the trees upside down, looking for insects in the bark.

I wonder if it will stay for the winter or migrate south?
