No way, I said out loud. I thought it was a bird in the hole in the old Shagbark Hickory, but couldn’t see it clearly from where I stood on the ground. When I looked at it using the close-up on my iPhone camera, there it was, a little bird calm as could be checking out the world outside its home in the tree.
I don’t know what kind of bird it is, perhaps someone reading this does and will let me know.

Looks to me like a white-breasted nuthatch!
Yes, Denise, seems that’s what it is, I can see it now. Thanks!
I think it’s a white breasted nuthatch https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/White-breasted_Nuthatch/overview
It funny Dagny, I watch the nuthatches all winter at the feeder, but didn’t see the resemblance till you all mentioned it. Now it seems obvious. Thanks!
What a wonderful surprise. I think it’s a white breasted nuthatch, but it’s hard to be sure without seeing the body.
Looks like you’re right Tricia, Everyone agrees!
Looks like a nuthatch but could be a wren.
The consensus is nuthatch Patsy. Thanks!
I thought nuthatch also. How fun to see this! Nuthatch are so delightful to watch and I adore their chittering sounds! I still have the nuthatch potholder you made hung on my studio door. 🙂
It’s funny Barb, I see them more in the winter than in the summer. Probably because they’re not right out my window at the feeder. But I see lots of other birds in the summer that I see in the winter too.
