As we close in on this spring’s migration season, Jenney and I are very excited about the return of the warblers. The vivid colors that adorn most birds in the mating season is amazing to us! How a female can be dressed similar to her mate, but not quite as flashy, is phenomenal! And even more amazing still is that each species has a mating season attire, and a more drab set replaces this each fall.
But then, if that’s not enough, some birds are made to blend in to their surroundings.
The brown creeper is the master of disguise. It is so well concealed by its set of feathers, unless it moves, you would completely miss it.
The Brown Creeper searches the nooks and crannies of mature trees for the insects it eats.
It seems to us that nature just isn’t very easy to classify. As soon as you try, something doesn’t fit. We believe this is not only to keep us interested, it is also to make us think.
