Red-breasted Nuthatch, Sitta canadensis, male. Feeds on insects and seeds. Much smaller than White-breasted Nuthatch, with dark eye-line, white "eyebrow", and pale orange underparts.

Just a lucky shot at the minimum focusing distance of my 400mm lens. 11' Handheld shot... because I didn't have time to mount on my tripod.
