Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small nuthatch of coniferous forests in western North America. Note dark grayish-brown cap and buffy underparts with grayish sides. Very similar plumage to Brown-headed Nuthatch, but no range overlap. Usually occurs in small flocks high in the crowns of pine trees, often mixed with other songbirds. Listen for cute pips and squeaks.
