Dear B-A,

I have just been watching a Noisy Miner doing a fair imitation of a Treecreeper on the trunk of a Eucalypt in my back yard. It was climbing up the trunk, happily gleaning insects from under bark that was lifting from the trunk. It was also climbing down the trunk, by grasping flakes of bark in its claws. I saw another NM using the same technique a couple of days ago. Is this a common behaviour in NMs?
