Unknown bird?

by Jason
(Dexter, MO.)

This little bird moved very quickly that is why the pic is blurry. It moved like a woodpecker flying from tree to tree and walking up the side of them. Gray back with a white underbelly and very small. I am very curious to know what he might have been. I live in Southeast Missouri. Thanks for any help.

Thanks

Thanks I have done some investigating and I think it might be a Brown Creeper. Thanks for the clue Hayley. It appears to be using it's tail to prop itself up. It also could be a Nuthatch I originally thought this myself Judy but I didn't notice it coming down the tree head first. Thanks for both of your comments. I plan on returning to the area soon perhaps i will be able to get a better photo.

White-breasted Nuthatch
by: Judy of Seattle

I think your bird looks a lot like a nuthatch. They love to climb up the bark of trees. Perhaps it's a white-breasted nuthatch.
