Ah... nothing like a dreary, rainy, fall day. And I only say that because I'm so used to hot, dry, summer days. But this, oh, it's really nice. We have a White-Breasted Nuthatch living in our tree. I named him Nutty. Nuthatches have an unusual habit of descending trees upside-down. I think it's actually fascinating. These are pictures:

This is the male.

This is the female.

The related Red-Breasted Nuthatch is actually closer related to the European Pygmy Nuthatch than to the White-Breasted Nuthatch. These are pictures of them:

This is a male, too.

This is a female of the Red-Breasted Nuthatch.

Now that I've showed you pictures, maybe you can spot them. As I've said before (twice), happy birding!
