      Hello everyone! Recently, I've been witnessing a White-Breasted Nuthatch open and close his wings with a type of great intensity. The wing movements aren't as much of a flap, but as if the nuthatch were to want to open its wings for a stretch but tuck them back in. In fact, the surging of the wings looks like a stretch itself! I was interested because I've seen aggressive flaps from birds, but never this smooth and more calculated motion. I think this could potentially be a sign of annoyance or aggression--but I'm not completely sure. It would be great if someone could help. :) Thank you!

        Yes! Quite similar to this, actually. Thank you so much for the help! I didn't know they used this as a way to defend themselves. This video is quite cool. :) Thanks again!
