Treecreepers are mostly spotted climbing trees where they look for invertebrates under the bark,  in between they scuttle along the ground to feed. They favour dry forests, woodlands and fallen timber, an apt description of the location this one was spotted in in north-west NSW. The Brown Treecreeper is one of the larger varieties reaching up to 16 cms, they nest in grass-lined hollows and lay 2-3 freckled and streaked pinkish eggs.
