Photo of the Week

Treecreepers Certhia familiaris are well-named and superbly camouflaged against tree bark with mottled feathers and a long down-curved bill for catching insects, spiders and grubs. A stiff tail helps support the bird as it creeps jerkily up trunks before making a short flight to spiral its way up another tree. The treecreeper nests in a cleft or behind a piece of bark and lays a large clutch of 3-9 eggs. The chicks can climb competently even before they can fly well, often leaving the crowded nest to fledge in the tree branches.
