Flipped 45 degrees counter clockwise for your consideration. Brown creeper creeping about. It is the only tree creeper in North America. I can't get enough of this little croissant. Check your trees! #browncreeper #treecreeper #cutesmallbird #certhiidae

That bird you hear every visit to the forest. You may have even seen one hitching up a tree then fluttering down to the trunk of the next tree over. #BrownCreeper, yer'all right... #birdbanding

I had a lovely encounter with two of these beautifully plumaged and camouflaged birds on my walk this afternoon. My digiscope attempts were another lesson in you can't always get what you want, so instead here's a macro photo from fall banding at KVBO #browncreeper

Had a little visitor today :) Poor Brown Creeper must of hit the window. He's was just a bit stunned and few away after a few minutes 🤗 #ottawa #birds #browncreeper #wildlife #littlevisitor

A little flying person found their way into and back out of the stone room the morning after the blizzard. So many visitors!! #lupinewood #wildlife #birdfriend #browncreeper

Brown Creepers are tiny yet lanky songbirds. They have long, spine-tipped tails, slim bodies, and slender, decurved bills. They search for small insects and spiders by hitching upward in a spiral around tree trunks and limbs. To move to a new tree, they fly weakly to its base and resume climbing up. These birds breed primarily in mature evergreen or mixed evergreen-deciduous forests. You can find them at many elevations, even as high as 11,000 feet at treeline in the West. In the winter season, the species moves into a broader variety of forests and becomes much easier to find in deciduous woodlands. Sometimes creepers build nests in unusual places, such as behind window shutters, in or under roofs, inside fenceposts, or inside concrete blocks. They burn an estimated 4–10 calories (technically, kilocalories) per day, a tiny fraction of a human’s daily intake of about 2,000 kilocalories. By eating a single spider, a creeper gains enough energy to climb nearly 200 feet vertically. The oldest Brown Creeper on record was at least 5 years, 5 months old and was recaptured and rereleased during banding operations in Illinois.

This Brown Creeper was doing a great job zipping between trees catching little bugs. Could have been focusing more on mosquitos though. #birdwatching #birdstagram #Alaska #browncreeper

This little Brown Creeper was a great addition to our banding morning. They are one of my favourite birds and always make me think of little old men! 😍It's occurred to me that I always post pictures of the birds we catch but never explain what we do with them. All of the birds we capture are fitted with an aluminum band that has a unique identifying number which can give us information on bird movements if they are recaptured at a different station. We also take morphological measurements and age and sex the bird. Once the process is complete the birds are released back into the wild with their new piece of jewelry! 💎🐦 #maps2017 #browncreeper #grumpyoldman #banding #birdsofinstagram #birdsoftheborealforest

Brown Creeper. I miss seeing these little creepers. Sometime in the winter #tbt #browncreeper #treecreeper #certhiidae #camouflage

Nothing typifies creeping more than taking a video of some nestling #BrownCreepers in a crack in a wooden outhouse. #browncreeper #wildlife #birds #babybirds #nestlings

#browncreeper with lunch....one of my favorite birds ❤️ #certhiaamericana
