Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Fairly common in deciduous and mixed woodland, forest, gardens with larger trees; visits bird feeders. Usually seen as singles or pairs, hitching along trunks and larger branches. Acts a bit like a mini-woodpecker, but does not use its tail for support and sometimes goes downwards head-first. Often feeds in the canopy, but also feeds on the ground where seeds have fallen. Easily overlooked until rather loud ringing calls are learned. Appearance distinctive, with long pointed bill, short tail, black mask, and peachy-colored underparts.
