[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From our Manitoba trip.

A very cooperative bird in a soft evening light.
A nice bonus for our trip, this species being very hard to find in the Toronto area where I live.

The Sedge Wren (Cistothorus platensis) is a small songbird of the Wren family. It was formerly known as the Short-billed Marsh Wren, and in South America is often known as the Grass Wren.

North American populations migrate to coastal areas in the Southeastern United States, and the entire Gulf Coast south through eastern Mexico.

These birds forage low in vegetation, sometimes flying up to catch insects in flight. They mainly eat insects, also spiders.

Hello Mario,
Gorgeous photo of this singing Sedge Wren. Fantastic sharpness, details and splendid colours. The clarity is really perfect. Beautiful composition and background.

Wonderful capture of the bird in singing pose, Mario.
Exceptionally sharp image with perfect details and colours.


Bonjour Mario,
Une attitude pour le moins originale saisie à l'instant décisif.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
