There are two types of Treecreeper in Europe: the species known simply as the Treecreeper, and the Short-toed Treecreeper. They are very difficult to tell apart although experts can distinguish them by their calls or by slight differences in the colouring of their feathers. Both species prefer a nest box that allows contact inside with a tree trunk that has a coarse type of bark, such as oak, alder, poplar, pine, pear or apple trees. For this reason the Treecreeper boxes are open at the rear (the tree side). With their pointed beaks the Birds can search among the cracks in the bark for spiders and insects such as Beetles. The entrances, on both sides, provide excellent protection against Cats and Martens.
The nest boxes should be hung on trunks with a diameter of between 25 and 30 cm. Depending on regional conditions, there may be differences in the rate of occupancy between the 2B and 2BN. We therefore recommend that you begin by using the same number of both types. After one or two breeding seasons it will be apparent which type is most popular in a particular area.
