White-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta carolinensis) taken north of Edmonton, Alberta, in the mixed boreal forest.
Near Thorhild, Alberta. About to fly....
A very interesting bird which didn't sit still very long, hence, difficult to photograph. Photo taken on the west outside perimeter of the Phoenix Zoo.
