From the middle of a thicket of vines, or on the ground amid dense marsh grass, a rattled trill calls out in defiance of my presence. Wrens are notorious for sounding like they are scolding – this one seems more so because it is essentially invisible. My attempt to get a clear photo finally panned out with one clear shot after many blurry images or simply snaps of empty brambles!
Marsh Wrens forage low to the ground feeding on insects and spiders. Males build up to six spherical nests and females choose one to line and lay eggs. (Birds of the Puget Sound Region)
Wishing everyone safe harbor, as we navigate onward. Please mask-up and stay safe.🐾
