I have never seen one of these outside of a bird guide. Like a really stealthy nuthatch.
If I had not seen it land he would have been impossible to find on the tree. Unlike a nuthatch, who never stopped talking to themselves, this bird made no sounds at all.
I looked up information and found they have a wide habitat range. Strange I never photographed them before. Oh well, getting my quota of New England birds before we head down south again.
Of course we then start all over again with another complete change of species.
