~ Along The Marsh Trail ~

There isn’t nearly as much marsh in front of The Breakers at Long Beach, WA – USA this year as last, and what remains is shrinking to meadow daily.

Still, Mallards are raising their chicks in what water there is!

Red-winged Blackbirds call from around the meadow. This one has established his territory, sounding his warning  from the branches of this shrub every time I’m out.

Although common in marshy meadows, this is the first time I’ve photographed and identified a Savannah Sparrow.
