Abstract

Vocalizations of the White-breasted Nuthatches (Sitta carolinensis) were studied from 1 October 1973-1 May 1975 in Le Sueur County, Minnesota. The vocal repertoire of this nuthatch was found to consist of two juvenile and 13 adult calls plus a song that was given at two different rates. A description of the behavioral context of the vocalizations is presented, and possible functions are suggested.
