Photo Share: Marsh Wren

Photo by Simon Pierre Barrette
The Marsh Wren Cistothorus palustris lives and breeds all across Michigan from April to October in the large cattail and bulrush marshes. Not easy to spot, they are a reclusive bird that zip about in short bursts to hunt flying insects. If you are in a marsh, it is more likely that you will hear the wren's distinctive, gurgling, rattling trill.

Thank you for sharing your photo! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
