I was at Doodletown in NY on Wednesday and had a definite Red-breasted Nuthatch and thought this was odd. It was very vocal and easy to locate. While in the northeast kingdom of VT last week they were all over the place.

I never saw the bird.  I'm calling it a probable and probably won't ebird it since immature White-breasted can sometimes sound similar, but this sure sounded like an RBNU.  Maybe others will have some, as they sometimes show up early in advance of irruption years (hope hope).
