What's with the black eye stripe? Or am I imagining that?

Stokes actually shows a bird that has a similar marking. I'm not sure, but it looks like that line traces just above the auricular tract -- it may just be that the feathers are a bit out of place.

Okay, thanks:) I looked at that and it didn't match anything else than a nuthatch, but I have not seen that on the birds I have seen. But then, I'm a newbie so I certainly have not seen what you and others have. Appreciate it!

Someone posted a pic of one recently that had a similar line. Then I saw one on my feeder that had one, but it disappeared when the bird changed position, so I agree that it's just feather positioning that makes it look like it has an eyeline.
