House Wren (Troglodytes aedon)

In late May, I started using Merlin ID to identity photograph the birds in my backyard and the nearby woods.

This may be because I have used the Merlin Bird ID app to identify the birds singing in my backyard. In the afternoon and morning, I sat on the steps of the deck in the backyard, waiting for the birds to land on a tree branch or one of the large rocks in the backyard. The neighbours must think it odd seeing me walking slowly up and down carrying the imposing XF150-600mmF5.6-8 R LM OIS WR super zoom.

The house wren is a delightful little bird with a cheerful song. It's a small bird, but the house wren brings a bit of whimsy to the backyard. I see quite a few zipping between the woods beyond the fence and the short pine bushes in the backyard.

This week the Merlin Bird ID app identified a blackpoll warbler this morning, but I have not seen or photographed this bird.
