Nuthatches have a long pointed bill and, unlike most small garden birds, appear to have no neck, giving them the appearance of a large head. Their upperparts are blue-grey and their underparts are a buff-orange, which becomes more chestnut on the flanks. They have a blue-grey crown and nape, a black eye stripe and white on the rest of the face. The male has more intense chestnut flanks than the female, and juveniles have less. 


Their favourite food is peanuts and dried mealworms, and will feed from most bird feeders. For more information on peanut and mealworm products.
