Marsh Wren (Cistothorus palustris)

During the mating season, the male builds 5 to 6 unfinished nests constituted of grasses, cattails, and sedges woven together with an entrance at the side. The female selects one nest and adds a lining to it
or simply built another one.


  1. Wow, now that is one busy male and to think that the female may not like any of them and builds her ungrateful is she;) Wonderful images. Have a great week~

  2. Hoi Dominique

    Groetjes Henk
