Tinny Bird?

Birds are sometimes named for what they do or what they look like. Turnstones for instance turn stones. Red flanked Blue tails have red flanks and a blue tail.

We watched a Treecreeper the other week doing exactly what it shouldn’t have been doing. It was scratting around on the forest floor. A little removed from what it says on the tin … although it was scraping a living.

The smallest of cracks in a tree

A few weeks ago we were pointed in the direction of a Treecreeper’s nest.

It never ceases to amaze me how small a gap these little birds can get into; just a slither of an opening, into the tiniest cavity behind bark. In they flew with beaks full of insects and out they flew with a faecal sac; as fast as lightening, making any chance of a decent photo very limited indeed.
The nest and emergent Treecreeper is pictured below.
