Familia: Tichodromidae

You can get "Checklist of the Wallcreepers of Planet Earth" as an e-book here.


The family of Wallcreepers is common in Eurasia from Spain to eastern China. The body size is 15.5 to 17 cm. The plumage is mainly blue-gray, but when the wings are closed, the most noticeable features are largely hidden. When the wings are open, their extraordinary crimson-colored wing feathers are visible. Their habitat is in the mountains at altitudes from 1000 m to 3000 m and they only move to lower altitudes in winter. Wallcreepers are insectivores that feed on small invertebrates that they glean off the rock surface. They nest in crevices or caves that they pad out.
