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.

Ingleside - I've had two good opportunities with this species this year but it was years before that and not a good result at the time.

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.

I was very excited about this Wren perching on a dead log only meters away this morning. I have not seen a wren before. This little bird stayed for about 30 seconds for me to get many good photos.

This Winter Wren was doing its best impression of a creeper as it explored the trunk of this tree.

This spring the Winter Wren reappeared at the same locale as last year. I managed some pics in the gloom. It was a little far for flash.
I like the Fench name "Forest Wren", very fitting.
