  2. I like how you were get a picture of the nuthatch to show how maneuverable it is.

    I have not had a nuthatch on my feeder since late November.

  10. really nice action shot! You know this brings up a question that has been bugging me lately. Is there a difference between a white-breasted nuthatch & a slender-billed white-breasted nuthatch? serious question… I’ve been digging thru your photos to see if can find one but I think maybe it’s just an older name for the same bird?

    aullori,
    The slender-billed white-breasted nuthatch is a subspecies found in western Oregon, Washington (barely), California, and into Baja California. It is in decline in Oregon, and a Species of Concern in Washington. They do have more slender bills and a few other subtle physical differences from other subspecies. Their voices also differ from other subspecies.
