BYBirds-6496-Edit.jpg

White breasted nuthatch with upturned head and bill, looking for insects while creeping down tree trunk. The behavior of creeping down trees headfirst and raising head and neck parallel to the ground is unique to nuthatches, resulting in their nickname "the upside-down bird."
