Was there ever a more aptly named bird? The Treecreeper does exactly what its name implies: it uses its long claws to creep expertly up trees, poking and probing into every nook and cranny in its constant search for niblits. If its name could be improved, ever so slightly, it would be with the addition of the word spiral, thus Spiralling treecreeper, as anyone would agree who has ever tried to watch or photograph one of these busy birds and been led a merry dance round and round a tree in an attempt to follow the bird.
