Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small nuthatch of pine woodlands in the southeastern U.S. Note brown cap and pale off-white underparts. Very similar plumage to Pygmy Nuthatch, but no range overlap. Usually occurs in small flocks high in the crowns of pine trees, sometimes mixed with other songbirds. Listen for squeaky calls, very much like a toy rubber ducky.
