The nuthatches are a family, Sittidae, of generally very similar small passerine birds found throughout the Northern hemisphere. Most nuthatches are woodland birds, although a few species have adapted to rocky habitats. They have the unusual ability to climb down trees head first, unlike species such as woodpeckers which can only go upwards. Nuthatches have big heads, short tails and powerful bills and feet. Their shape is distinctive, and all species are recognizable as nuthatches if one has been seen. More

Nuthatches exploit crevices in other ways. They often store seeds in bark crevices and remember their locations for months. They also use crevices to hold a hard seed in place while “hacking it”—using the full force of their bodies to pound on the seed with their bills. All species are cavity nesters. Nuthatches live around the world, except in South America. The best-known species in North America are the red-breasted nuthatch (Sitta canadensis), a stubby, grayish, rufous-breasted, 10-gram (0.

nuthatch (nŭt'hăch) , common name applied to a number of Old and New World species of small birds of the genus Sitta, related to the titmouse and the creeper. The name refers to its habit of wedging nuts into crevices in trees and pecking them open. Nuthatches are unique in that they climb down tree trunks headfirst in their search for insects and spiders. Unlike the creepers, the nuthatches have straight bills and do not use their short tail feathers as a prop. More

Nuthatches are dapper little birds that have the peculiar habit of traveling head-first down tree trunks. This unusual posture allows them to search bark crevices for insects overlooked by other birds who move along trees head first. Nuthatches are valuable birds to have around. They keep trees healthy by eating tons of beetles, caterpillars, wood borers, and other damaging insects. More
