Hello-

I'm new to birding and saw what I think is a white-breated nuthatch visit my feeder with a friend I can't identify. The friend bird (on lower perch in photos) appears brown and gray on it's back, a white belly, and a distinct horizontal white stripe on its wing. Any help is appreciated! I live in Northern Virginia.

Haha! I'm so embarrassed. "This is the most common of common birds of all time, newbie."

🙂 Thank you very much, Melierax.

No problem! Haha, House Sparrows can be confusing.

Welcome! The top bird is indeed a White-breasted Nuthatch and the bottom is a House Sparrow. 🙂
