A small songbird the size of a chickadee; has brown on top of neck & head above eye line, white below. Back mostly grayish to brown.
Pine forests where it eats seeds from pinecones.
This nuthatch has nested in the same tree over the past few seasons located adjacent to a patch of pine trees to the west, and a tidal marsh surrounding it to the north and east. I see this one often, but it has never been an easy bird to capture photos of. These photos were taken with a Canon EF100-400 f/4-f/5.6 lens mounted on a Canon Rebel T2i.
Lat: 36.90, Long: -76.03
