Eurasian (common) treecreeper (Certhia familiaris familiaris) at Vitosha Mountain, Bulgaria


Eurasian (common) treecreeper (Certhia familiaris familiaris) at Vitosha Mountain, Bulgaria. I made this clip from pretty great distance and poor light and again the Panasonic TZ80 held its ground.

This is one pretty interesting and somewhat difficult to shoot bird. It is found mostly in mountainous areas, where is difficult to approach them and even if we are lucky to have one of then close there often are a lot of branches, twigs and leafs which make it difficult to focus and follow with the camera. It doesn't help either that this birdie doesn't stop moving and often disappears from view. Anyway I managed to have a good look take a few photos at one of these.
