Brown Creeper  Certhia Americana
Brown Creeper  Certhia Americana

The Brown Creeper is a small and very well camouflaged bird of mature coniferous and deciduous woodlands.
Feeding mainly on insects it creeps along tree trunks climbing upward, picking invertebrates from the bark with its curved and pointed bill, using its tail to brace itself. 
Most commonly it will nest behind strips of bark attached to a tree, occasionally in cavities as high as fifty ft. above ground.
With its dependency on mature forests it is declining in the eastern part of its range.
