This bugger is pecking on the side of my house. I don’t know anything about birds, but it doesn’t look like your typical woodpecker.


  • $\begingroup$ BTW, the pecking may be due to finding a plentiful supply of insects in your siding. $\endgroup$ – mgkrebbs Apr 24 '18 at 18:43

That is a red breasted nuthatch.(https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Red-breasted_Nuthatch/id

Include a location next time,it helps with identification.

  • $\begingroup$ See how the top part of the beak is flatter than the bottom part of the beak. That helps them catch the insects that they eat. $\endgroup$ – peter Apr 24 '18 at 15:16
