Pygmy Nuthatch

Sitta pygmaea


Nuthatch family
White underside, slate blue back, dark wingtips and grayish-brown cap that runs just under the dark eyes. Straight pointed bill and short tail. These small birds usually fly in groups. Squeeky chirps and highly energetic.


Pine forests, mixed forest with pine and favorite is Ponderosa Pines.


Finally spotted one, or should I say group. But this was the closest one I could photograph.
