- White-breasted Nuthatch
] The White-breasted Nuthatch is the only North American nuthatch usually found in deciduous trees; Red-breasted, Pygmy and Brown-headed Nuthatches prefer pines.
The presence of mature or decaying trees with holes suitable for nesting is essential, and trees such as oak,
beechand hickory are favored in the east since they provide edible seeds. Although suitable habitat is distributed continentally, it is discontinuous, and the separate populations of this non-migratory species have diverged to form distinct regional subspecies.] [ Retrieved 3 August 2008] cite web| author = | title= White-breasted Nuthatch "Sitta carolinensis" | work= BirdWeb — Seattle Audubon's guide to the birds of Washington | url=http://www.birdweb.org/birdweb/bird_details.aspx?id=334 | publisher= Seattle Audubon Society | Retrieved 3 August 2008] This nuthatch is protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918, to which the three countries in which it occurs (Canada, Mexico, and the United States) are all signatories.
