Brown Creeper

Fun Facts About Brown Creepers

  • Brown Creepers search for insects by starting at the base of a tree and climbing, sometimes spiraling, up the trunk. They fly to the base of the next tree and start up again.
  • Brown Creepers build nests behind loose strips of bark still attached to a tree.
  • To hide from predators, the beautifully camouflaged Brown Creeper spreads its wings and flattens almost invisibly against the tree trunk.
  • Besides insects, Brown Creepers eat some sunflower seeds, pine and grass seeds, acorns and corn.
