If not, that’s OK with the bird — it doesn’t want to be seen! But if you want to see it anyway, then check this page about Brown Creepers and take another look.
Brown Creepers are hard to spot when they sit still on a tree, but easier to see when they move. If you have a large tree in your yard, one may be outside your door right now. They visit neighborhoods throughout the United States as they migrate north to breed. Look for them as they climb up one tree looking for food, and then fly to the bottom of the next tree to climb again.
Brown Creepers were one of four “year birds” we saw yesterday at Columbus Park. Go here to read about them.
