Brown Treecreepers on the move …

This observation is now a week old, but noteworthy nonetheless.

This Brown Treecreeper was observed collecting nest-lining material at the Rise and Shine. I’m not 100% sure what the material is but suspect it may well be fur from a dead rabbit. Treecreepers are nothing if not opportunistic.

    This week I spotted a tree creeper with earthwool insulation in its beak!

  3. If that is rabbit fur, then I’m pleased to see some small good coming from the invader.
