Marsh Wren

What animal has the best sense of time?

A Watchdog!

Interesting Fact: The secret life of the Marsh Wren plays out under the cover of reeds. Here, males routinely mate with 2 or more females and build at least 6 dummy nests for every female they mate with. One male built 22 nests on his territory. (


  1. Birds are the most difficult to photograph, or at least that’s been my experience. This is a great shot. Thanks for sharing.

    • Yeah it is hard to get a good photo dealing with birds. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! πŸ™‚

  2. Excellent! And such interesting facts. I agree with Carol Hopkins, birds are challenging subjects. And yet, you do it wonderfully.

  3. Nice job – I’ve found those Marsh Wrens never stay in one spot very long making for quite the workout when trying to get them in the tin!
