A Long-billed Marsh Wren (Cistothorus palustris) clung to a high grassy perch and considered his surroundings with a discerning eye. The springy foot-holds swayed in a gentle breeze as the bird surveyed the territory it had staked out in the marsh. Nearby, other wrens also hung watchfully from their towers of vegetation.
