Today's Bird Keepers


I think I'm getting better at birding, thanks to the M5 Mkii, which is lightning fast to lock on to target ... well, I only have the E3 to compare it to.
But I have much to learn about their behaviours, when they are most active, etc. It seems that after early morning they have a siesta until late afternoon.
Anyway, today I went out to Woolshed Falls and came home with two keepers.

A Tree Creeper of sorts.

I agree with Dave, the Treecreeper is very good Mark. If they are anything like our UK variety they are extremely animated and tricky to photograph.

Thanks Davy and Ron, animated indeed, just kept flitting from one spot to another stopping only for a second or two.

They are not related to European Tree Creepers.
