This Morning Outside

It's just a flake of bark moving upwards along the trunk, until it gets sideways. Then it becomes a brown creeper, a tiny bird of the forest that lives on the minute animal life it finds in the bark.

Test your hearing by listening for its song, high pitched and fine as a crystal filament. Some people lose the ability to hear the brown creeper as their ears age.

Many more simply never realize that this inconspicuous bird is in their own back yards.
