Charismatic Climber - Nuthatch (Sitta europaea)
In my humble opinion, Nuthatches (Sitta Europaea) are birds of terrific charisma. They are master climbers of trees where they run up, down and around the tree trunks and branches. They simply don't mind whether they are right way up or upside down. In addition, they have a characteristic pose in which they are facing downwards on a tree trunk, but looking upwards at the same time.
The plumage of a Nuthatch is nothing but striking. It has a smokey grey back, yellowish-beige belly and reddish-brown under-tail. It sports white cheeks and grey head that contrast nicely with a black eye-stripe.
