Red-Breasted Nuthatch

Description of the Red-Breasted Nuthatch

The long billed, short tailed Nuthatch dawns a rust colored belly, black cap on their head and tints of blue on their wings.

Don’t count on seeing them from year to year.  Typically, Red-Breasted Nuthatches only travel south when evergreen cone production is down.  Evergreen cone production usually varies on a two-year cycle.
