Treecreepers and Reed Buntings

The final bird post for the year.
Firstly I noticed two Treecreepers flying about a large Oak tree on my walk. They were moving about the tree, but not in any form of pattern. I got the impression that one was trying to drive away the other at times.








A female Reed Bunting was observed eating seeds from dead Nettle plants.

  2. Kauniita kuvia! Puukiipijä on mahdoton kuvattava! Lintu ei pysy paikoillaan yhtään. Hyvää Uutta vuotta 2017!

  4. We have a Brown Creeper here. So neat the way it's almost invisible against the tree trunks. Maybe that's why I hardly ever see them!

    1. They are never easy to find FG and always on the move when you do catch sight of them.

  5. Hi Roy, a great set of photos!
    I love those Tree-creepers, so elusive though!
    The Reed bunting is a great catch too!
    Wishing you the best for 2017 :)

      Yes the Treecreepers don't hang around very long for photoshoots. :)
