What is a possible bird identification for a bird with a speckled red breast?


Answer by  Sara89 (367)

A few possibilities would include a red-breasted North American robin, a rose-breasted Grosbeak (a type of cardinal), and the red-breasted nuthatch. The nuthatch in particular is found in the northeastern and western United States and Canada, and is notable for hanging upside-down on trees and a very loud chirp that sounds like a trumpet.
