Look at that tail! What a beautiful little bird. I haven't seen any wrens for a while, but this post inspires me to look around. Great shot.

You have to love that cute tail!

Dawn said...

thank you Robin, let us know what you find!
Welcome Mel, I hope you come by often. Your blog is very interesting, love seeing a new country.

Beautiful! We have wrens that look very similar, but we hear them more often than we see them. Does your Marsh Wren have a voice that seems far too big for him, too?

Dawn said...

Thanks Jay! yes all our wrens here are loud mouths. amazing how much noise can come from such a small bird.

I met the same marsh wren the other day in the reeds of our lake...!! lovely capture of that moment before they fly...you must be just south of me and you have such similar birds...I probably can wave to you from the beach!!!

Aww he;s lovely. Our wrens in the UK are much browner and simple in their plumage. I have a soft spot for wrens as that was my Mum's nickname for me as a child. Jeni-Wren. She stills calls me it sometimes when she's feeling fondness. Having read your remark about 'little bird big mouth' I'm wondering if that's the reason she calls me it. LOL.
I love your pictures. You are truly gifted. x
