A Brown-headed Nuthatch (Sitta pusilla) perches quickly on a broken branch during a light morning snow shower. This nuthatch is smaller in size than the White-breasted Nuthatch as well as faster in movement and flight. Their small size is not represented in their loud and distinct “squeaky-dog-toy” chirp. When two of these Brown-headed Nuthatches get together the squeaks they make talking back and forth to one another is extremely comical.
