Here’s a side-by-side (well, really top-to-bottom) comparison of the two nuthatches in New England. The White-breasted is more common throughout much of the region. It is also larger than its cousin. The Red-breasted is more common in the northern parts of New England and visits the southern region in the winter in numbers that vary greatly from year to year.
Thank you for the wonderful picture comparison. Visual differences are really noticeable. jim

Thanks for the great pix. I get both here in south western NH as regulars to the feeders.
