I took an indifferent picture of a Brown Creeper this morning. Indeed, it is barely worth posting — except for the backstory: with this creeper it is four for four.
I have seen a Brown Creeper four times, and on each of those occasions someone else found it for me. I have never found one on my own. OK, in my defence, this little bird is the master of disguise.
Yet…, how long will this creeper-finding disability persist?
A Brown Creeper (briefly) clings to the trunk of a Douglas-fir in the forest.
This better shot of a Brown Creeper was taken in 2017, but it also was found by someone else.
