Yunnan Nuthatch

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical dry forests. It is becoming rare due to habitat loss.

The Yunnan Nuthatch is classified as Near Threatened (NT), is close to qualifying for or is likely to qualify for a threatened category in the near future.

The Yunnan Nuthatch can cope with some tree loss, since it prefers open pine woodland, but although still locally common, it has disappeared from several of the areas in which it was recorded in the early 20th century. The threat to Yellow-billed is particularly acute on Hainan, where more than 70% of the woodland has been lost in the past 50 years due to shifting cultivation and the use of wood for fuel during Chinese government re-settlement programmes.

The Yunnan nuthatch belongs to the bird family Sittidae, a name which originates from a Greek word that is used to describe birds that peck at the bark of trees (3). It is a bluey-grey bird, with a distinctive broad black stripe extending from the bill, through the eye and down the sides of the neck. The sides of the face and throat are white, and the underparts are a pinkish-buff. Juveniles can be distinguished by their less bold eye stripe. More
