    Default Treecreepers identification

    The past weekend we took some pictures from a treecreeper in Spain. We thought that was a Short-toed Treecreeper, but this has some characteristics of Eurasian Treecreeper and we iniciated a large discuss about it. Plese let me know your opinion.

    I'm not too familiar with Short-toed, but the wing pattern looks closer to that from the pics in Collins, etc. Hybrids are documented, so that is also an option.

    Any details of its calls / song?

    What location is it? (latitude, longitude & altitude please, for those of us unfamiliar with Spanish place names!)

    The place is in the cantabrian mountains just in the nort of Spain 800m over the sea level in a oak forest ( Quercus petraea), I can not tell you a lot abou the call because the meeting with the bird was short.

    Its interesting because the wing bar its similar to Eurasian Treecreeper but the rest of features not.

    For me, photo 1-3 it's a Common Treecreper and the rest a typical Sghort-toed Treecreper...
