Nuthatch eating seed at feeder


Nuthatches are somewhat woodpecker-like, but more agile, perching up on their feet with bodies and tails held well clear. They can descend head-first and hang upside down beneath twigs and branches.

There is one UK species of nuthatch, with a second in Europe and a few elsewhere. The UK species is a woodland bird, always associated with trees or tall bushes. It has the unique habit in the UK of plastering mud around the entrance to its nest hole.
