The Brown Creeper is common in moderate-aged or mature forests throughout western Washington, and at moderate and high elevations in eastern Washington.
Core zones were all those below Alpine/Parkland, above steppe, and excluding Oak. Large, contiguous areas of the Ponderosa Pine zone not adjacent to a more moist zone were excluded by range limits. Mid-to late-seral forests and conifer-dominated wetlands were good habitats. Early-seral forests, parkland, other wetlands, low-density residential areas, and wooded parks were adequate.
Although this species is found in many forested areas, it is primarily a species of mature, moist conifer forests. The necessary components for breeding include nest tree (usually hardwood) with loose bark or cavities, and conifers for foraging.
