Red-breasted Nuthatch

 Red-breasted Nuthatch (Sitta canadensis) at my feeder yesterday.  

Cornell University's All About Birds begins the description of this species

An intense bundle of energy at your feeder, Red-breasted Nuthatches are tiny, active birds of north woods and western mountains.

All About Birds also describes their call as "excitable yank-yank calls sound like tiny tin horns"

The RBNUs are mostly Winter birds in Southern Sask; however, at least one pair was frequently at my feeders throughout this past year.
