Winter Wren | Troglodytes hiemalis | Troglodyte des forêts

More easily detected by sound rather than sight, these energetic little birds frequently emit a staccato series of "chimp" calls, whether in response to my presence or just because, I do not know.

 

In addition to being noisy, they are also quite unafraid and allow close approach, which is not as much of an advantage for photographers as one would hope, as this bird spends most of the time buried deep in fallen debris on the forest floor.

 

Fortunately, I found a line through to this wren, and was able to secure a photo reflective of the bird's confident nature and cosy home.
