My Little Buddy..

Walking around the Missouri Botanical Gardens and this little wren popped out of the weeds to greet me.  I couldn't resist taking some pictures of him as he flitted about looking for insects in the pond.

She looks like a Marsh Wren to me, a bird I've never seen in real life.  However, when posted on a photo forum I frequent, some of the experienced birders told me she was another kind of wren I'd never heard of before.  I can't remember the name, but they said it was a pretty rare species.


  1. Thanks, Randy. Birding is another hobby of mine that plays nicely off the photography obsession.
