Looks to be a Nuthatch.

Sorry - red-breasted

Thank everyone. I was just testing the BirdForum's ID service for an upcoming blogpost on Birding 101. Birdwatching from the beginning in the digital age.
You past! 1 minute is very impressive.

One thing which could be useful is that the field marks to look out for is mentioned when supplying the ID. This way it would be more educational.

Thanks again KC and Steve. And sorry for being a bit rude.. like that. I was trying to imitate a no-clue newbie. :-)

Haha! Yes, I already knew what it was. I am exploring resources for complete newbies for the blog. Birdforum has a fantastic resource here.
Highly recommended!
