Keep a low profile

This little bird has earned itself the moniker “Tree creeper”. It scoots up the stems of trees pressed as close to the tree as it can, poking around under the bark for insects or grubs. It's almost invisible from some angles and when you first catch sight of it you would be forgiven for thinking it was some kind of mouse because of it's unnatural posture.

I have never seen such a bird, no wonder it they move so fast,,I'm slow :)) Love the way he gets confused with the tree and the background, it is amazing.
Wonderful catch!!

What a cute little bird - I can see how he'd be almost invisible.
