146. Brown Creeper

On January 20, 2018 we had the 146th bird species come to our yard in Hillsboro, New Mexico - a Brown Creeper, Certhia americana, photo from January 22 below.  Like the other new yard birds of this winter this is a species that we occasionally see in walks along the crest of the Black Range, but in eight years of watching we have not seen it on this date.

This species is found in North America, south to Nicaragua in Central America. It is absent from the far north and parts of Mexico of North America.
