White-breasted Nuthatch

A White-breasted Nuthatch foraging for bugs on a tree trunk in Central Park on March 23, 2016.

Nuthatches like to walk down and Downy Woodpeckers usually climb up treetrunks — I remember it this way, Downys go uppy Hatches go down.

    Nuthatches are a frequent visitor of my tree/feeders. They are some of the hardest working birds out there. Up,down,up… they run around the trunk with no fear of falling. So adorable!
