On Saturday, we visited the Trillium Community Forest on Whidbey Island and
got a quick glimpse of a White-breasted Nuthatch. It was a single bird
associating with two Red-breasted Nuthatches. The birds were very vocal.
I saw them in the trees between Highway 525 and the Trillium parking area
midday. The nuthatches were part of a foraging group including both
chickadees, a Golden-crowned Kinglet and a Brown Creeper,

I've seen White-breasted Nuthatches in the past and I realize this is an
unlikely species for our area, so if anyone can confirm my sighting, I
would appreciate it.
