This tiny Wren-sized
Insectivore methodically inspects the nooks and crannies of Tree Bark in
search of Inscects which damage trees. The one above is nearly invisible,
until it silhouettes against the contrasting background (insert).
They can be found across the
United States wherever there are dying Trees with loose Bark to conceal
Insects and their Eggs and also provide a place for the Brown Creeper Nest.
In nature, they build a hammock-shaped
nest in the crevice formed by loose bark hanging from Trees. It's comical
to see the young take their first "creeps" up a Tree.
