Red-breasted Nuthatch

I was shopping at the Home Depot at W. 9th and W. Valley Parkway, Escondido, when I heard the distinct call of a Red-breasted Nuthatch from some nearby pine trees that border 9th Ave..  I had a brief glimpse of the bird and the reddish colored breast and black eyestripe were very clear.
