What are your thoughts of the Brown Creeper's protective coloration / camouflage? How well does he blend in with his surroundings?

This was the my first ever Brown Creeper and its behavior was fascinating. He flew to the base of a tree and spiraled upward searching the bark crevices with his thin, curved bill for food such as insects and spiders. Once he reached one of the lower limbs he would fly to the base of another tree close by and repeat the process. His spiky stiff tail assisted him in climbing and foraging for food similar to that of a Woodpecker.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and thanks for looking.


A closer look.
