Clinging and singing, the Sedge Wren is calling out from the top of a cattail at Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary, Arcata, California.
Breeding season in full swing. Our House Finch calling/looking for a mate or simply securing a high perch for other purposes. You decide.
Mature Great Egret with wings wide spread, coming in easy on landing.
Last light of day helps us see the fine feather details of this handsome Snowy Egret (a lesser sized member of the Egret species).
Overcast day at the marsh has a dampening effect on the sunlight, however the same dampening also makes our Great Egret prominent against the reeds and cattails.
