Tree Creeper

Tree creepers are so well camouflaged they can be very hard to spot, but their high-pitched calls give them away. They creep up trees, as their name suggest, in search of insects and larvae in crevises under the bark. They can even nest behind peeling bark.You can clearly see how long their claws are - designed to give them grip as they ascend vertical slopes.
