Hi John,
Great photo! I work at Finley and yes, we do band songbirds there. I work with USGS at a MAPS station on Pigeon Butte where we have seen an increasing number of WB Nuthatches after oak restoration efforts. This bird was banded near the office at a demo we did for a group of visiting biology students from Purdue University, a few of which were from Sweden. The pair is often at the feeder, they likely nest in the oaks next to the office with the Acorn Woodpeckers. I saw a few juvs with them at the feeder last summer.

Hanging out at HQ feeders....anyone know anything about this banded WB Nuthatch? I'm just curious if the bird was banded in an onsite project or what. Photo at www.birdingoregon.com/sightings.html
