S. thinks these are quite cute and spotted this one out back. Has a skunk striped head, bluish back, and orangish belly. Call can sound a bit like a beeping alarm clock or the inclement weather alert on TV. Climbs like a woodpecker and is very good at hanging upside down. It spent some time poking at the shingles of our garage. To hear the sounds and see videos of the nuthatch in action, see here.
