Plain-brown Woodcreeper, Dendrocincla fuliginosa


Plain-brown Woodcreeper
There are nearly 30 species of woodcreepers in Ecuador, and I was happy to
be able to get pictures of two of them in the Milpe area, at the transition between
the tropical lowlands and the subtropical rainforest of the lower foothills. As
the name suggests, they are found creeping along the bark of densely packed
trees in dark forest, not the easiest birds to photograph. See also the
Spotted Woodcreeper.
