Certhia familiaris


The treecreeper is small, very active, insectivorous songbird that lives in trees, and often seen crawling trees like a mouse. It reaches about 12 cm in length, almost 1/3 of it is tail. Both European treecreepers look alike, and the easiest way to distinguish them is by song - Treecreeper is speckled-brown above and mainly white bellow; it has a long, slender and curved bill and white supercilium.


Common but discreet resident of Eurasian temperate woodlands, prefers those with coniferous elements. Here seen on edges of such forest, edges giving to mountain pastures in French so-called Pre-Alps.
