Brown Creeper – Humble and Unassuming

This dapper little specimen scampers up the trunk of a tree, consuming insects. It arrives early in Our Woods with the kinglets, and goes about its business pretty quietly. Not until I photographed it this year did I realize how well marked and attractive it is. So, here, a small shout-out to the Brown Creeper. The above photos were taken in April.

We’ve been away on a very busy trip, and missed the best time for viewing the warbler procession in the park system behind our house. I don’t often post or comment on others’ posts while away. Apologies.
