[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I discovered this Marsh Wren gathering nest building materials at the edge of the water. I watched her for over half an hour, then as I moved on a few yards I found her nest. Tomorrow I will post a shot of her busy with the construction.
Unfortunately, I live in an area where the light is dismal for 3/4 of the year, so please forgive the noise levels. I have Neat Image, but don't use it much because it blurs what little feather detail I can get in this dull light.

hi Shelley,
bonne image cet oiseau est parfticulièrement difficile a shooter. J'aime l'nevironnement naturel, les couleurs.

Hello Shelley,
This is a specie that we don't see often and you caught it in action which is so interesting. I agree that the picture is a little noisy and that some details have been lost but this is a very nice action caught. Well seen!
