The Eurasian treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) is a small passerine bird. They are quite common here, but often difficult to spot because they’re so well camouflaged (as demonstrated in the lower picture).
They are often confused with the Short-toed treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla), the easiest way to tell them apart is by song. The Eurasian (common) says “srrri” and the Short-toed says “tyyyt”.
Five birds photographed in the Amsterdamse Bos today-
(1) European robin (Erithacus rubecula)
(2) Eurasian siskin (Spinus spinus)
(3) Short-toed treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla)
(4) Great egret (Ardea alba)
(5) Grey heron (Ardea cinerea)
I’m still learning how to use the SX60.. Here are some bird pictures I’ve taken this week-
