The short-toed treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla) has a shorter hind claw than the Eurasian Treecreeper. The narrow, pointed beak, is much longer in the short-toed treecreeper than the Eurasian treecreeper. It also has browner flanks, and even steps on the wingbar. The best way to tell the difference between a short-toed treecreeper and Eurasian treecreeper is by its call. Short-toed treecreepers love large, old trees, and are commonly found in deciduous forests or orchards. Resident in the Channel islands, it is common in Europe from Germany and Poland southwards.
