  1. The Brown Creeper shots are terrific. I have tried numerous times to get good shots of the to no avail. They really need to be shot in profile as you have them here to show off the plumage details. May I ask what you shot this with? Nice work.

  3. In Europe, the “Grimpereau” (in french), a cousin of the brown creeper, is a bird very difficult to photography. I suppose it’s the same thong with the brown ceeper. Congratulations for this beautiful pictures.

  4. Great pics! Love the one where you can see his “prey”! I’ve always thought the creeper kinda looked like a wren. 🙂

  5. Excellent shots Harold.
    He’s just like our Treecreeper.

  6. Thanks Robin. They were shot with a 5D and a 100-400mm lens. The problem I find is that you need to shoot them in profile as you say but then you usualy end up with a blown out background. I guess its hard to have it all.

  7. Thanks jean-Michel

    I agree, they are very difficult, always on the move and usually to the other side of the tree.

    Yes I can see that, certainly in size and plumage color.
