Brown Creeper

Certhia americana

The Brown Creeper's song is high, thin and sibilant. It is easily recognized; although the notes are variable. Creepers make seet contact calls as they move through the woods in pairs or in small flocks. (Scratchy sound is the bird moving on the tree bark.) (Three songs by one bird, seets by a second bird, Albany County, New York.)
Habitat: Mature woods.
