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'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).
