[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Brown Creeper (Certhia americana), also known as the American Tree Creeper, is a small songbird.

Adults are brown on the upperparts with light spotting, resembling a piece of tree bark, with white underparts. They have a long thin bill with a slight downward curve and a long stiff tail used for support as the bird creeps upwards.

Hello Vinay,
A nice shot of a bird that is not easily photographed, because of it's habit of continually moving while on the trunk of a tree. Focus is tac sharp and colors are true and natural. You even managed to capture it with an insect in it's beak. Great Job.

Hello Vinay,
Not an easy task to take pictures of this species.They are always in movement and the light sky was not the best for a photographer. You managed both, movement and light and made an elegant and fine shot.
Well done!
