Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Unmistakable. The only creeper in its range. Spotted and barred overall with long, slender, decurved bill and slightly rounded tail. Found in fairly open deciduous forest as well as in well-wooded country and mango groves, favoring mature trees with deep-fissured bark for foraging. Seen singly or in pairs, rarely in small flocks during the non-breeding season. Song is a complex phrase of clear, plaintive whistles with ascending and descending notes, some short and others longer. Calls are shorter but of similar plaintive quality.
