Brown Creepers are small birds that work the trunks and branches of trees in mature woods searching for insects, larvae, aphids, etc. They typically start at the bottom of the tree trunk and walk up the tree, then fly down to the base of another tree and repeat, looking for food. I see them often when I see chickadees and nuthatches. Ridgefield NWR, Feb. 13, 2015.

Wonderful image Dennis. I’m envious (again)
Thanks, Bruce! Hadn’t gotten a decent shot of one of these guys for quite a while so I was happy this one was usable.
Beautiful photo Dennis – it has everything; detail, light, setting, composition and, of course, a great little bird.
I appreciate the nice comment, Tony! Thanks!
