White-Breasted Nuthatch

These look a lot like Carolina Chickadees at first. But upon better inspection, are quite differently marked. They are larger overall, their bills are longer and they have more intricately marked slate-grey feathers. Unlike the Caroline Chickadee, their black cap continues to run down their nape and across the shoulders.
