The Brown-headed Nuthatch is found in the conifer forests of the southeastern U.S. and is rarely found outside of pine- dominated areas where there are snags of dead trees for them to make their nests.
The Brown-headed Nuthatch eats pine seeds and insects and larvae taken from the bark of trees. They are an adaptive species that has incorporated tool use into their feeding. They will take a chip of bark and use it as a tool to remove other pieces of bark to get to the insects beneath.
