Observation Location: Forest Trail, Moose Hill Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary

Common Name: Brown Creeper

Scientific Name: Certhia americana

Comments: I was approximately 1/3rd down trail when I heard call. I was not familiar with call so I opened Merlin. It identified the call as a Brown Creeper. I looked for 10 minutes until I saw it. Very small. Very good camouflage. There were 2 but I only saw one of them. The other one was calling on the other side of the trail. Never saw that one. Watched subject hopping up tree eating bug from bark for about 5 minutes. Then it flew off.
