White breasted nuthatch,

White breasted nuthatch, at the pond, Dec 1, 2022.


Rondeau Provincial Park.
A lot more goldfinches today along with tree sparrows and a hermit thrush and of course, the regular suspects.
Sitta carolinensis.
In winter, White-breasted Nuthatches join foraging flocks led by chickadees or titmice, perhaps partly because it makes food easier to find and partly because more birds can keep an eye out for predators. One study found that when titmice were removed from a flock, nuthatches were more wary and less willing to visit exposed bird feeders.
