Brown-headed Nuthatch

 A new bird at the feeder - a brown-headed nuthatch. This little bird is only found here in the Southeastern United States, no where else on the continent.

What a little beauty. Our nuthatches have a deep grey-blue back and a pale apricot underside. They also look as though they have black eye liner on. I must try and take a photo of the ones who come to the bird feeders.
Pretty birds , but they can be quite aggressive to other species who try and share the feeder.

Is the weather better on your side of the continent?

DW: I would love to see a picture of your nuthatches if you can get one to stay still long enough to take it.

Anyes: Rain on Saturday and Sunday but in the low 50's. It is supposed to be sunny for the rest of the week.
