The next day I headed up to the Stirling Ranges. Around the campsite at the
Retreat was a pair of *Rufous Treecreepers which were very tame, hopping
right up to your feet. They were also nest building. It was reported earlier
that somebody had been standing around and one of the Treecreepers starting
climbing up their leg! Added several birds to the list around the Retreat:

This makes me wonder what I was looking at when I was here. I must have walked through this camping area at least five times in four days and did not even hear them about. Obviously concntrating on something else. As Stirling Ranges NP is a huge reserve, I assume they are found elsewhere in the park. Are there other spots, particularly of Wandoo where they can be seen in this Park?
