Eurasian Treecreeper on the ground

It's still quite common belief that Eurasian Treecreepers (Certhia familiaris) do not eat from the ground. Even some bird books tell that as a truth. But as you can see, that's not true. Among birdwatchers this is no news, as many birdwatchers have seen treecreepers eating small pieces of nuts and seeds from the ground at feeding places. This bird is one of three treecreepers that have been visiting in our feeding place during this winter.
