Brown Creeper
Certhia americana

Notice that the bird has moved up around 6 inches from the previous image. These were taken about one second apart. In my experience, these birds rarely spend much time in one spot on a trunk. They are constantly moving upwards looking for food (they are incapable of climbing down head first).

Location: Sheldon Jackson College Campus, Sitka, Alaska
