Brown Creeper

Brown Creepers, like this one on 2 January 2019, are usually hard to photograph. They are small and constantly move about trees. They spiral up the trunks, then fly to the base on another tree to continue their upward spiral. They search for small arthropods, arthropod eggs, and larvae. Creepers are also fond of feeder suet cached by nuthatches and woodpeckers. Although creepers occasionally feed on the ground under the suet feeder, I am not sure I have ever seen one on the feeder.
