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.
