MARSH WREN, COLONEL SAMUEL SMITH PARK, TORONTO, ON
We can ID this bird as a Marsh Wren by its prominent white eyebrows; dark crown; slender bill that is dark above, light below and slightly downsurved; white throat and upper chest; and upright tail. The Marsh Wren was heard by a number of birders before it was seen. It was hidden among cattails. It was finally sighted because a sparrow came along and disturbed it.
The Marsh Wren is a new species to our Photographic Life List, which now stands at 523.
