Brown Creeper

Certhia americana

The Brown Creeper ranges across most of temperate North America in mature, coniferous forests. Nuthatches are usually observed climbing down tree trunks. Due to the need to use their tails as a brace, Brown Creepers are not capable of downward movement, and always climb up the trees.
