Red-browed Treecreeper

Climacteris erythrops

The Red-browed Treecreeper, Climacteris erythrops, presents itself with a rather distinguished appearance. Its back is cloaked in dark brown plumage, while a striking red brow sits prominently above its eye, a feature that no doubt contributes to its name.

Identification Tips

When attempting to identify this species, look for the characteristic red brow, which serves as a vivid contrast to its darker back. This feature is quite distinctive and aids in distinguishing it from other treecreepers.


The Red-browed Treecreeper is known to favor mature eucalypt forests and woodlands. These birds thrive in both coastal and mountainous regions, where the trees provide ample foraging opportunities.


Endemic to the eastern parts of Australia, this species has carved out a territory that stretches from central Victoria to south-eastern Queensland. It is a bird of temperate and subtropical climes, finding solace in the varied landscapes of this vast continent.

Diet and Feeding

Invertebrates form the cornerstone of the Red-browed Treecreeper's diet. These creatures are meticulously sought after among the bark and crevices of eucalypt trees.

Conservation status

The IUCN Red List has classified the Red-browed Treecreeper as Least Concern. This status indicates that, for now, the species does not face any immediate threat of extinction in the wild.

App got me interested in birding!
Super friendly community <3 This app got me interested in birding! It teaches me cool stuff and its super friendly, and fun :) The species guide is really developing my knowledge, and i love seeing cool new birds from round the world!
A Friendly Place
I love using the bird app, I have a pretty good knowledge of birds. But I do have some gaps in it, so it’s nice to have a safe space to check on a sighting to confirm the species. It’s really enjoyable and I love the badges you can collect. It’s like a real life Pokémon go.
Very Wholesome App
Joined this app with a new interest in watching birds to help me find out what I was spotting. The community is very active in helping identify birds which is great and everyone is very kind so it’s just a nice wholesome community. I would definitely recommend this for any bird spotter 😄
Great app for beginner twitchers
I’ve had a passion of photographing birds for a long time now but have only just gotten into proper birdwatching, and this app is brilliant for those just getting started. There is a great sense of community among users and the app is very easy to use and professional. Awesome app altogether

Fun way to add to your birdwatching experience
I enjoy watching birds in my backyard, but this app helped me really pay attention while on vacation this summer. It was fun to add new birds to my bird watching app.
Terrific App for Birders
Downloaded Birda around the time my interest in birding was sparked, and it has been a terrific app to help me (1) share my experience, (2) document my sightings, and (3) learn more about birds in general. That said, I also believe Birda is a fantastic app for birders of all experience levels. Great community!
Fantastic app - Love it!
Love this app and have used it almost daily. Lots of species information and easy to use. Love seeing birds spotted by other users in the UK and worldwide.

Great app for learning Birds
I’ve been using the app for a couple of months and love it....Someone said it’s like a real life Pokémon Go for birds. They’re not far off! It’s something that the family can do that gets you out and about. Well worth downloading no matter your age.
Unbridled Discoveries
Great app for bird lovers
I love this app! It’s a wonderful way to track birding sessions, and also connect you with fellow birders. I also really like the unidentified bird section, it’s a great community tool to help figure out what a never-before-seen bird is!
