Little Bird - Big Claws

One bird that has climbing off to a fine art - The Treecreeper.
With its large claws it can climb up tree trunks and hang upside down on branches with ease.
It is also well equipped with a long curled beak that it uses to prize open bark to search for insects.









Shot on a separate occasion this treecreeper in an unusual pose.

  1. Always a pleasure to stop and watch as these busy little 'acrobats' work their way around the branches...[;o)
