Brown Creepers build their nests under loose bark, so yes, they are indeed fond of such trees. For feeding purposes, however, they will explore many different kinds of trees with bark, loose or not.

I would hear and then see them as I went about my morning chores. It isn’t as likely for me to hear and see them where I now live as the wood edges are quite a distance from the yard. I recently read that they are particularly fond of trees that have loose bark. I immediately thought about the Shagbark Hickory and wonder if anyone has noted them on a particular variety of tree?
