The Brown Creeper is a very small slim tree climber that is brown above and white below with a slender decurved bill and stiff tail. It has a range from southern Alaska, Canada, United States to Nicaragua. It has a habitat of woodlands, groves, and shade trees. It is usually seen after its voice is heard as a single high thin seee sound. It ascends trees spirally from the base with its tail braced against the surface. It feeds on mostly insects in the bark.
