Yes, nuthatches and chickadees will both put holes in wood siding. The best way to deal with it is to put up a nest box with an appropriate sized hole. (The metal rings around the hole will keep out mice. Place on a southeast side (which is likely where they are anyway).
I have a full page of woodpecker tips on my website if you are interested. Kevin's drop down spider is also a good exclusionary tactic. But living with them is much more fun.
