Camouflage Artist

Looking at the trunk of this cherry tree you would hardly know anything was there..

until it moves, of course!
Then the little flash of cream/buff feathers on its breast announces the presence of the little Tree Creeper...


Of course the dead give away is when you catch sight of one in profile..

But that's not very often! Wise little creature!

Very observant. Great series of birdy pics over the past few weeks.

We've seen one on our walnut tree, but not as good a view as this! P.

They are cute little birds. We had one once nesting in a hole in the wall of the gite we used to rent before the house was habitable.
