The clean white brow and dark cap of this nuthatch separate it from other nuthatches in its range. Plain gray upperparts and tannish undersides give it a rather soiled and dirty appearance. Inhabits pine forests, sometimes venturing into large parks and gardens with coniferous stands. Gives a variety of calls, including bleating nasal notes, sharper chips, and loud yammering.
