White-throated Treecreeper

The nearest that we have to a Woodpecker in Australia. Note her large feet with long toes with sharp claws which enables them to creep up the smoothest of tree trunks. This one is a female and she may be trying to find the borer caterpillar that has eaten a track up this tree trunk.
