For at least two months, we've been seeing not only the usual white-breasted nuthatch...


... but a smaller, more tawny-coloured nuthatch.
Finally, today the bird was captured on film: It's species number 47 (spotted in our backyard), a red-breasted nuthatch.
It has a distinctive black and white stripe running along the side of its head. It's smaller than a white-breasted nuthatch.

Here it appears to be sharing our sunflower seed feeder with a female purple finch.
