House Wren

“Shh.  Listen to the sounds that surround you.  Notice the pitches, the volumes, the timbre, the many lines of counterpoint.  As light taught Monet to paint, the earth may be teaching you music.”

~ Pete Seeger (1919-2014) American folksinger and social activist

While the House Wren is rather small and plain in appearance, the song it sings is big, bright, and melodious.  I look forward to hearing it every spring!  If you have not heard this tuneful bird, please check out the following link and become acquainted:

My name is Mara. I am Minnesota born and raised. Four seasons, forests, farms, and 10,000 lakes have given me a deep appreciation for nature. Photography helps me to share this love with others. And, once in awhile, I find myself interested in sociology. Go figure.
