Brown Treecreeper

Tree Creepers are very common in the Wedderburn area, although debate can rage as to whether it’s a White Browed Treecreeper or a Brown Treecreeper.  White Browed tend to be found outside of the Wedderburn area. The White Throated is common though as is the Brown Treecreeper.

These birds forage on the trees in the bush and climb up them in small hops going around and around the tree to cover it completely in its search for food.  Fascinating to watch and photograph.

Wikipedia Description

The brown treecreeper (Climacteris picumnus) is the largest Australasian treecreeper. The bird, endemic to eastern Australia, has a broad distribution, occupying areas from Cape York, Queensland, throughout New South Wales and Victoria to Port Augusta and the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. Prevalent nowadays between 16˚S and 38˚S, the population has contracted from the edges of its pre-European range, declining in Adelaide and Cape York. Found in a diverse range of habitats varying from coastal forests to mallee shrub-lands, the brown treecreeper often occupies eucalypt-dominated woodland habitats up to 1,000 metres (3,300 ft), avoiding areas with a dense shrubby understorey.
