The Brown-headed Nuthatch is a small species of nuthatch that lives in the southeastern United States and a small area of Grand Bahama. They live in pine forests and can often be found by listening for their cute dog-toy-like squeaky call.
Brown-headed Nuthatches are small, about the same size as the Pygmy Nuthatches. Brown-headed Nuthatches are smart and are one of the few bird species to use tools in their feeding behavior. They have been seen using loose pieces of bark to pry or move tree bark in their search for a tasty meal.
