I know Robins get all the glory at this time of year, but I want to put in a word for the unfairly overlooked but very lovely Tree Creeper.
I can see why it's not as popular as it might be. It is astonishingly well camouflaged against the background of a tree and very small, so you may never see it. It took forever to get this photo.
But it's a charming bird when you do see it; small, plump and busy as it works its way up a tree trunk. Best of all, it eats spiders! In short, it deserves a bigger place in our hearts.
