Brown Creeper

Oil, 4 x 4 inches

Brown Creepers are one of my favorite birds, and one doesn’t need to live in the woods to see these trunk climbers. When I first moved to Duluth and lived in the residential area known as Lakeside, I noticed a Brown Creeper edging up my neighbor’s large spruce tree in early May. Spring had sprung, and I welcomed the new arrival. Inconspicuous because of their camouflaged backs, these birds commonly fly from trunk to trunk and always creep from the bottom up in search of bugs hiding within the bark’s dark crevices.
