The Wren............................................................... a lovely little bird to watch

I captured this little clip of a Wren during July last year.


I heard it at first then managed to creep up and squat down with my camcorder just a few feet from where it was perched... I posted a clip back then but this version is only 34 seconds in length.
I hope you enjoy viewing it.

your camcorder did a great job capturing the sounds. i can even hear water in the background, maybe your fountain? are you still at home or did you get to go back to work yet?

The little feller sounds like a camera clicking everytime he squats and stands back up. He's taking pictures of his surroundings and the goofy man with a camcorder.

Lovely little birds. Nice clip Andrew.

Good clip Andrew. It immediately reminded me how a Wren is related to a Dipper.

This little boy is scolding you for being so close to his territory ... they are amazingly fiesty for such little birds and hard workers. We have several familis of them every year and it is a battle of territories, but they all seem to manage to raise several young, who then add to the chatter ... But the song of the Wren is wonderful. I am always in awe that such a beatiful song can come out of such a little bird. I enjoyed this ... thank you!
