Treecreeper

The treecreeper is a common bird here in Rosedale but not always easily seen.  It is a small bird and well camouflaged with its mottled brown upperparts against the bark of trees as it works its way up feeding on insects.  It then flits to the foot of another tree and repeats the process.  It has white underparts, a curved thin bill and exceedingly long hindclaws which enables it to defy gravity.  It nests in the tiniest of cavities and crevices of trees often behind lose bark.  Updale Natural History Recorder
