Orphaned fledgling White-Breasted Nuthatch, ready for the aviary.

Known for walking head-first down tree trunks, this short-tailed bird eats bugs in summer and nuts and seeds in winter. Nuthatches also eat suet. They are cavity nesters, and mated pairs stay together all year. They usually do not migrate.

Here is a fledgling Nuthatch that came to us as a nestling after being found in a yard. It could not be safely returned to its nest, so we cared for it until we could release it as a healthy juvenile.
