Greetings everyone, we are back on the highly underestimated Project Chekov. Definitely having fun doing it, but it is a struggle to stay on top of. Speaking of that, this little bird on top of a birdhouse has caused a little bit of a headache.
Back in June 2011 (told you I was behind) Linda and I went to one of our favorite local birding sites in Jubilee College State Park. They have a pond there that tends to attract a wide variety of birds and dragonflies and animals and hell spawn MOSQUITOES – all good things come at a price I guess. While we were there, this little bird decided to come out and pose for the cameras. Want to know beside Sparrows what other birds I have difficulties with? … you guessed it, this bird!
They are small and brown with some gray – yeah, normally I would call it a Sparrow and move along but these are smaller, have a more tapered/thinner tail and probably more distinguishable thin down turned bill. This is the point where I throw up the Wren sign instead.
Hit the jump to see a few more shots of this Wren and the other featured bird for this post!
