Additional Identification Notes
  • Allthough I have seen them in conifers they are more usually seen in deciduous woodland habitats
  • Quite often you will see them fly between trees, down from one ready to start the climb up another
  • They always climb upwards whereas nuthatches can climb down tree trunks
