Cascade Mountains - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Forests
Food : Insects
Nesting : Cavity
Behavior : Foliage Gleaner
Conservation : Low Concern

"A bird almost universally considered “cute” thanks to its oversized round head, tiny body, and curiosity about everything, including humans. The chickadee’s black cap and bib; white cheeks; gray back, wings, and tail; and whitish underside with buffy sides are distinctive. Its habit of investigating people and everything else in its home territory, and quickness to discover bird feeders, make it one of the first birds most people learn." - Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Cascade Mountains - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Forests
Food : Insects
Nesting : Cavity
Behavior : Bark Forager
Conservation : Low Concern

"White-breasted Nuthatches are active, agile little birds with an appetite for insects and large, meaty seeds. They get their common name from their habit of jamming large nuts and acorns into tree bark, then whacking them with their sharp bill to “hatch” out the seed from the inside. White-breasted Nuthatches may be small but their voices are loud, and often their insistent nasal yammering will lead you right to them." - Cornell University Lab of Ornithology

Emigrant Lake - Jackson County - Oregon - USA

Habitat : Open Woodlands
Food : Insects
Nesting : Cavity
Behavior : Foliage Gleaner
Conservation : DECLINING

"Nondescript save for its crest, the Oak Titmouse might not wow many bird watchers at first sight. But these vocal, active birds characterize the warm, dry oak woods from southern Oregon to Baja California—they’re “the voice and soul of the oaks,” according to one early naturalist. Mates pair for life, and both partners noisily defend their territory year-round. The Oak Titmouse and the nearly identical Juniper Titmouse of the Great Basin were once treated as a single species, the Plain Titmouse... In its pursuit of insects and plant materials, the Oak Titmouse forages at a rate of about 40 food-catching attempts every 15 minutes."

I call this bird the ventriloquist. The White-breasted Nuthatch is a very vocal bird. When I first started birding, I was looking for a large bird far away. Turns out it was a small bird very close. Hence the nickname.

A daily visitor to my feeding station. While constant movement make them a challenging bird to photograph, they are nice enough to consistently call seconds before arrival,
