Interested in College in Alaska?

Red-breasted Nuthatch
Sitta canadensis

This was the first time I recall seeing a nuthatch. This one kept flying between a willow tree and the ground as I approached it. It did not seem very concerned about me at all, allowing me to get within a few feet.

Location: Hillcrest Drive, Sitka, Alaska
