Picture taken at Thibessart’s pond on April 30, 2012.

The Short-toed Treecreeper, Certhia brachydactyla, is a small passerine bird found in woodlands through much of the warmer regions of Europe and into north Africa. It has a generally more southerly distribution than the other European treecreeper species, the Common Treecreeper, with which it is easily confused where they both occur. (It can be most easily distinguished by its different song).

Le Grimpereau des jardins (Certhia brachydactyla) est une petite espèce de passereau de la famille des Certhiidae. C'est un petit oiseau (12 à 13,5 cm de longueur pour un poids de 8 à 12 g), de couleur plutôt terne avec des rayures brunes sur le dessus et blanches sur le dessous. Il a une queue raide qui l'aide à se maintenir sur les troncs d'arbres lorsqu'il y recherche des insectes. Son bec est long et incurvé vers le bas. Ses pattes étant relativement courtes, il donne l'impression d'être plaqué contre le tronc sur lequel il est posé.
Le meilleur moyen de le distinguer du Grimpereau des bois (Certhia familiaris), avec lequel il partage une grande partie de sa répartition européenne, reste son chant.

A neat little guy. We have Brown Creepers here, but I have yet to see one. Thank you for sharing. This nice, crisp shot shows that he is prettier than ours. I like the moss.

The light and color are simply superb, and the little guy looks quite intent on something of extreme importance. I love the "tall" feeling of this image.

Beautiful shot. Hard to shoot these guys like this; my camera tends to focus on the tree trunk and not the bird, even using centre-point af. Tree looks fascinating - lots of hiding places for insects. I bet nuthatches would like this too.
