Certhia familiaris
(A Detachment Of The Passerine Family Pishogue)


Pika - similar to the mouse grayish-brown bird with a white silk belly, Yurko running around the tree trunk twisted spiral. However, pika - it's not the mouse, and why the mouse to climb so high on the tree? This bird usually flies and squealing. Will fly a little, will sit down to popisat and will fly again.

Jack arranges in a ramshackle hollow of a tree, carefully fastening each branch, laying in the bottom of his house cereals and small feathers. For Chicks caring and female, and male.

In late summer, when the Chicks grow up, this sinicco easily be seen wandering through the woods in search of food. She needs to feed the whole family. Quiet bird and quite unremarkable among noisy and talkative flocks. But we somehow you always find this modest gray ball with a long elastic tail and a characteristic squeak, seeing the bird next to a Park or forest, on the banks of the river.


The main food pika - beetles, caterpillars, bugs, aphids, spiders. Destroying overwintering pests, bird brings great benefit to the gardens and forests.
