Common across the Tableland, this bird restlessly circles tree trunks and branches using the firm grip of these disproportionately long clawed feet. Systematically spiralling up it then swoops down to the lower reaches of its next target, before beginning the process again.
Its diet of insects comes from piercing the bark with this perfectly designed, penetrating, long, thin, curved beak. You might be mistaken in having thought this quite a plain bird from a distance. However, I think the white chest, speckled underside and fine detail around the face make it a lovely creature.
