A male white-breasted nuthatch is on the hunt for insects in the upper branches of a dying aspen tree. Sometimes referred to as "upside down birds", white-breasted nuthatches, like their slightly smaller cousins the red-breasted nuthatches, land toward the top branches of a tree and work their way downward. White-breasteds are usually found in deciduous trees while red-breasteds are more commonly found in coniferous forests. Both species feed off of insects of all kinds found in the bark of trees and at times even hide insects they find under the bark for a later time.
