Ottawa - Winter Wren is not a new bird but this was my first in winter, as shown with this snow white background. In Southern Ontario a few stick around but further north they are rare in winter. I made four attempts to see this little guy over the last 6 weeks (not travelling specifically for it) and finally got lucky.
Ottawa - I had three of these birds today and spent well over an hour trying to get a picture of one. It was very challenging because it was always behind branches. I finally got a few in the open. It was not too far and I was able to do a decent crop. Don't forget, this is a very small bird.
