|Do you see me?|
We finally got one to pop out of deep cover long enough to get a few decent pictures. It continues to be gray and cloudy here most of the time, so pictures in the deep woods are a challenge to say the least!
We're hoping that when breeding season gets started in the next few weeks these guys might become a little more vocal and easier to find.
One interesting field mark for the Pacific Wren (as well as the Winter Wren) is their noticeably short tail. Most wrens have a longish tail that they like to hold up over their backs. It is a distinctive posture that lets us know they are wrens!
But the Pacific wren has the shortest tail of all the wrens, and it really stands out when you finally see one well.
