[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) is a small songbird of the nuthatch family found in woodlands across North America. The upperparts are pale blue-gray, and the face and underparts are white. It has a black cap and a chestnut lower belly. The nine subspecies differ mainly in the color of the body plumage.

Like other nuthatches, the White-breasted Nuthatch forages for insects on trunks and branches, and is able to move head-first down trees. Seeds form a substantial part of its winter diet.

Hello Vinay,
Great to see you back here on TN.
This White-breasted Nuthatch is perched in splendid light and very beautiful colours. Excellent contrast against the dark background. Good sharpness and details.
