These are two pics of a White-breasted Nuthatch. This guy was working an Oak Tree at Morton Refuge. Neither one of these photographs show it, but Nuthatches are one of the very few species of birds that will search for insects on a tree in both up and down directions. Most birds conduct these same searches only while traveling upwards. I really don’t know the reason for this. Maybe they just don’t like looking down. JK.

This is a White-breasted Nuthatch that I saw at Morton Wildlife Refuge in Noyack, NY, which is just out side Sag Harbor. I got pretty lucky with this shot because these birds don’t sit very still for long. They are very active among the tree limbs and trunks, looking for insects. I managed to capture this guy while he was checking me out. Below is a closeup of this little guy’s head. You can really see its feathers quite clearly. JK
