    Can anyone identify this bird?

    Any one know what this is?



    This was in Rochester, NY if location matters. Oh, it can walk vertically on the bark of trees, too.

    Thanks,

    That was quick. Thanks. I kept thinking that this thing was a woodpecker since it was climbing around on the bark all weird. But it was eating seeds, so I got kinda confused. I'll post some more picks of chickadees eating from my hand in a couple minutes.










    That kid in the background is lying down 'cause they put seeds on his face to see if the birds would land on him.

    Nice birds, but you need to forget the birds and check on that dead body in your 5th pic.

    That's what I would say too if I just put seeds on a kid and he was pecked to death by chickadees.

    Yup. White-breasted Nuthatch. Nuthatches typically walk as easily face-down a tree as they do up.

    Also - watch for Red-breasted Nuthatches. As the bird lists all up & down the east coast have been reporting since ~ Sept, this is an irruption year where many more than normal numbers of these guys come south into the US. The RBN's are slightly smaller than the WBN's and even more active.
    All the best,
