White-browed Treecreeper with chick

I went birding with Mark Carter of Mark Carter Birding and Wildlife (best guide and bird-watcher in Alice Springs) as he wanted to try to find some White-browed Treecreepers as he suspected they had chicks. He didn't disappoint.

It took a little while to locate them, firstly by call, and then by sight.

we noticed first one, then three Treecreepers flitting from Ironwood to Ironwood, one fairly consistently calling/begging. We stayed on the roadside of the brabed-wire fenceline, and the birds slowly came closer. We took quite a few shots of the birds at distance, and then,they came a lot closer to where we had thought/hoped they would come. We were ready with the cameras and managed to get some decent photos.

These birds are common further south in South Australia, but can be tricky to find in the NT so it was wonderful to see they are breeding locally.

A huge thank you to Mark for allowing me to see and capture these birds.
