The Chestnut-vented Nuthatch or Sitta nagaensis is found in the south-eastern Asia from Tibet to southern Indochina and its natural habitats are temperate forests, subtropical moist lowland forests, and subtropical or montane forests such as Doi San Ju and Doi Lang, north of Thailand which is a perfect habitat for this bird to come.

Finding the Chestnut-vented Nuthatch has been a joy, it’s like the Treecreeper in which it likes to stick and feed on the trunk of the tree it is upside down or upright, it is difficult to find a perfect perching position unless being encouraged to do so. It does not as colourful as other birds that may look comical but its natural movement is comical. Winter is the best season to find this and it is abundant.
