Merging with the background .....

Is what Treecreepers do well.

If it was not for the visible hint of white breast plumage this bird would be hardly detectable as it climbed jerkily up the trunk of this tree.

Silhouettes and their flitting movement helps to locate these birds in the first place, but otherwise they would be pretty anonymous.  


  1. Its an amazingly solitary bird, in a flight shot I got what I never realised and isn't in too many books is the underside of the wing it has a solid white wing barm

  2. Its nice to discover something like that Doug, makes all the effort and time observing worth while, well done.
