2023—Perfect Description

For me, capturing a definitive characteristic of a bird with my camera is very satisfying. The Brown Creeper is described by Sibley Birds as “always seen clinging tightly to bark of large trees, braced with tail.” Soon after we crossed under the “Welcome to Magee Marsh” sign on our first morning there, Moose gestured for me to follow him. We walked further down the boardwalk and there was a Brown Creeper, clinging to the bark of a tree, and creeping up the trunk. It fit the Sibley Birds description perfectly.
