Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Brown Creeper

This morning, some movement caught my eye on the tree outside my kitchen window.  It was a small bird the blended almost perfectly with the color of the tree bark.  As it crept up and down the trunk, I knew I'd seen a picture of one before.  In my bird book, on the same page as the nuthatches (just as I remembered, I found it:  a brown creeper.  ~smile~  I was thrilled to see one live and on my own property too.

Brown creeper... what a funny name! Never heard of that before so I checked it out on Google images and it's really quite cute!

Wow, Raeanne, you really are keeping up on the blog! Glad you found a pic. I thought about posting a picture of one, but I prefer to keep all of the pictures my own.

He (or she) was very cute. I was thrilled to see one in real life and not just a picture.
