This was a first for me today. These little guys are about the size of a Kinglet, and so well camouflaged, that they're really hard to spot. But I got lucky, and caught this one today scaling a couple of different trees. These are 100% crops, but they turned out ok..they're one tough bird to photo....cheers...Don

1..this is the only side shot I was able to get, as they face the tree most of the time...

thekman, nice shooting!!!! they are one of the hardest little birds to get. everything you said about them is what I have experienced. I think i've only got captures of 2 different creeps. though, I did see 2 flying from tree to tree that i think was a mating but, never got a shot off. they don't creep up trees. they run up them!!!

Great shots, Don. I caught one of these fellows back in November, but your shots are much better than mine. The only way I saw it was that I just happened to be glancing that way at the right time and saw "some of the bark moving." Their camoflage is simply amazing and without movement, they can go completely unnoticed on a tree trunk.

Thanks everyone. I know these shots aren't that great, but for a record of something rare, they suffice.

Trojansoc, you described these perfectly. They're so well camouflaged, that if I hadn't heard it, I'd never have seen it....cheers...Don
