Brown Creepers are here!

Caught this little guy/gal bird banding today.  One of my goals in life is to find one of their nests.  They nest behind loose pieces of bark with a hammock like nest.  There is even a type of bird house you can build to try and help them.  Basically it is a piece of wood nailed against a tree with a spacer.   Amazing little birds, that burn 4-10 calories per day!  They eat mainly insects, but will sometimes eat suet and peanut butter in winter.
