Brown Creeper

Last Monday I took a drive to Dalton Lake, E. out of Vanocker Canyon. I'll be sharing some cool 'texture' photos from that drive later...it turned out that this unfamiliar-looking 'wren' I couldn't get a good shot of, is a brown creeper, a 'life list' addition for me. It was quite busy hunting for food and didn't stay still for more than a second or two.



I also enjoyed watching a hairy woodpecker up in the trees, while I was enjoying my own picnic.

There were also the usual black-capped chickadees, RB nuthatches, WB nuthatches, and DE juncos flitting about among the trees.

  1. well done on finding the Brown Creeper Jann! We have them over here, we call'em Tree creepers.

    PS your request for a fieldfare photo may take a while, they are very difficult to approach!

  4. I had a brown creeper visit my house last year. It only stayed for two days so I assume it was migrating.
