Brown Creeper

I just love this bird.  I saw it for the first time last year (when I started paying more attention to birds).  Its camouflage is superb.

Brown Creeper
Wildwood Cemetery
Ashland, MA

Do you see it?  

Here are a couple closer looks:

Per the Cornell Lab or Ornithology website, All About Birds, Brown Creepers search for small insects and spiders by hitching upward in a spiral around tree trunks and limbs.

If you look closely at the photo above, you will see that it has some tiny morsel of food in its bill.  Yes, I trudged through deep snow without boots in order to get a closer look.  It was worth it!
