House Wren by Ryser915 House Wren by Ryser915
House Wrens are extremely tiny birds with tons of personality. During breeding season they sing non-stop in constant defense of their territories. This particular bird has been singing on territory in my local patch for a couple weeks now. I just saw a second one yesterday, so it appears they're ready to breed.

Nice shot, these little things are not easy to capture un-blurred shots of.

Lovely capture.

I'm always amazed at how LOUD these tiny birds are when they sing.

We have these birdies in my yard at my summer cottage in Vermont. They make the weirdest, cutest flute-like call all day.

I love the plain birds. They make up for their quiet plummage by singing colourful songs.

Nice picture! Does this one have a beatiful singing? Because wrens here in Brazil do.
