I agree with White-breasted Nuthatch. One of the few birds that will climb down the tree head first!

Definatly a Red Breasted Nut Hatch.

Thay eat bugs in the bark of the tree. They scurry around the tree like a mouse, and have no regarde to gravity. fun bird but fast.

It's a white-breasted, not a red-breasted. Red-breasteds have an eyeline and a reddish breast. The white-breasted has the rust color on its sides, but not on the breast.

Here are pics of a red-breasted.
