House Wren

Just a quick note. Here's a House Wren I found on Lake Creek Trail this morning. House Wrens are winter residents of our neighborhood, and this was the first one I've seen this season. It could be on its way further south or it could be here to stay until the spring. First I heard it scolding, and I flushed it out of some tall grass into a dense thicket of poison ivy and grape vine. Then I coaxed it to the edge of the thicket to have another look at me by playing recorded House Wren scold notes on my iPhone.
