Pygmy Nuthatch

(Sitta pygmaea)

Our smallest nuthatch, about 4 inches long, the pygmy nuthatch is a resident of mountain pinelands in the West. Digging their own cavity in a dead tree or rotting stump or recycling an old woodpecker hole, a pair of pygmy nuthatches will raise 5 to 6 young. In fall and winter, pygmy nuthatches drift through the treetops in large and noisy flocks, often in the company of chickadees and titmice. At night, groups of as many as 100 birds will roost in a single cavity.
