Gartenbaumläufer – engl. short-toed treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla)

Wie sein Name schon verrät, ist der Gartenbaumläufer an Stämmen – besonders solchen mit grober Borke – zu Hause.

Der Gartenbaumläufer erreicht eine Körpergröße von 12 Zentimetern und wiegt etwa 11 Gramm.

Braun gefleckt fällt der Vogel kaum auf der rissigen Borke auf. Nur Kehle und Bauch sind weiß, und über dem Auge ist ein heller, jedoch meist undeutlicher Überaugenstreif erkennbar. Der Gartenbaumläufer ähnelt seinem Verwandten, dem Waldbaumläufer, im Aussehen so sehr, dass beide kaum voneinander zu unterscheiden sind.

Sein spitzer Schnabel ist nach unten gebogen und wird bis 12 mm lang. Seine Unterseite ist weiß, seine Oberseite rindenfarbig und sein Überaugenstreif weiß. Männchen und Weibchen haben die gleiche Farbe. Sein relativ langer Schwanz dient zum Stützen und zum Steuern im Flug. Insbesondere die mittleren Schwanzfedern sind besonders steif, um das Abstützen zu ermöglichen.Seine steifen Schwanzfedern dienen ihm beim Klettern als Stütze.

Typisch für den Gartenbaumläufer ist Klettern an Baumstämmen, bei dem er sich mit dem langen Schwanz abstützt und sich in kleinen Sprüngen aufwärts bewegt.

In Rissen und Spalten der Borke sucht der Gartenbaumläufer nach Käfern, kleinen Spinnen, Raupen und anderem Kleingetier. Mit seinem langen, dünnen, und deutlich gebogenen Schnabel gelangt er an die entlegensten Stellen und spürt dort seine Beute auf.

Wer alte Obstbäume im seinem Garten oder gar eine ganze Streuobstwiese besitzt, wird den Gartenbaumläufer am ehesten zu Gesicht bekommen.
