The sitellas are a family of small passerine birds found only in Australasia. They resemble treecreepers, but have soft tails. They do not migrate other than for local movements.

The sitellas are small woodland birds with thin pointed down-curved bills, which they use to extricate insects from bark. Nests are open cups in forked branches.
