Trillium Ridge Flora and Fauna
American Treecreeper
Certhia americana
Location: White Pine on north side (yes, with chicadees and nuthatches!)

Range: Throughout N. America
The Brown Creeper is best known for it's very active foraging behavior of flying to the base of a tree, spiraling upwards in search of food, and then flying to the base of another tree to begin the process again. In addition to constantly scouring crevices in tree bark for food, they also build their nests under flaps of loose bark. In the winter, Brown Creepers can often be found in mixed flocks with Chickadees and Nuthatches.
