NUTHATCHES

White-breasted Nuthatch

 
Nuthatches act like a small woodpecker -- but they walk DOWN the tree, as well as up!!  
Brown-headed Nuthatch
The tiny Brown-headed Nuthatch can be found in the piney woods of East Texas.

Nuthatches are the only birds that climb DOWN trees head-first, thanks to large feet and strong toes.  This makes them easy to spot, in spite of their tiny size!
