The bar-tailed treecreeper has a flecked or striped feather pattern, usually in black, brown, white and red hues. This coloration allows the treecreeper to blend in with its forest surroundings quite well.
It is found primarily in the northern parts of the Indian subcontinent, particularly in the Himalayas, as well as in adjoining regions.
The population is suspected to be in decline owing to ongoing habitat destruction and fragmentation.
