Common Name:Creeper, Brown
Scientific Name:Certhia americana
Area:Pioneer Park - Independence, Oregon
Date:March 21, 2014

Brown Creepers blend into the tree bark so well that they are hard to see unless they move. Luckily for us they are very active, working up a tree in search of bugs, then flying down to the base of the next tree and working up it.
