Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Gray with a slender black mask and warm underparts. Male has white extending from the throat onto the cheeks, and averages darker below than the female, which also lacks the male’s white cheek patch. Very similar to Chestnut-bellied Nuthatch, but overlap is minimal. Inhabits dry broadlaef and pine forests in lowland and foothill areas. Creeps about on tree trunks, often in small bands or with other species. Calls include upslurred trills, harsh rattles, and a ringing, repeated “jweeyeh.”
