Whilst I was sitting waiting for the Golden Oriole to show this morning on “Oriole Terrace” this little Wren was busy chasing anyone else who visited its tree.
The Wren, or Eurasian Wren to be precise has the best scientific name of Troglodytes troglodytes which always makes me chuckle. These tiny birds grow to just over 10cm but make a loud noise. This morning it was in a small Oak tree next to my position. Although I was fully camouflaged, I assume it saw me arrive and didn’t seem bothered by my presence. It’s almost impossible to tell between the males and females so not sure which this is, but I suspect it was the male defending his territory.
Did you know, that the males can build many nests sometimes nine or more. Then he’ll invite a female to inspect and chose one.
Considering it was very overcast when I took this photo and that it was shot at ISO 3200, it has come out fantastic.
