Pic of the Day

Marsh Wren, Cistothorus palustris:  Bear River Bird Sanctuary; Brigham, Utah
     Marsh Wrens seem as numerous as the cattails at the Bear River Bird Sanctuary, and their vociferous chants could be heard continuously as I drove along the wildlife drive. Many of the wren’s territories are deep within the mass of rushes, but this fine fellow was building a nest within easy reach of my lens.  As soon as I stopped to shoot, it flew to a nearby reed, began singing and perfectly posed for my camera.  I wish every shot could be as easy.
