We have been lucky to have two and sometimes even three Brown Creepers hanging around the area this winter. They have been the first to arrive to the trees in the morning steadily working their way up and down the bark of the spruce and pines on their daily quest for sustenance. Tiny birds weighing on average seven grams and at most fine inches in length they are well camouflaged yet their presence looms large and is a welcome sight in the quiet of the winter forest.

Sweet image! We so rarely see these, but yes, always a welcome sight.
That’s a lovely close-up on one of my favorite birds. It shows so many details of the plumage, and the eye. Super!
Lovely little bird! I guess with a beak like that that they probe into holes in the wood?
