Winter finally released its hold and Spring is making its presence known to human and animal alike. We've had a lot of rain and are experiencing warmer temperatures. The grass is growing, flowers are blooming and trees are budding. And, of course, the animals are coming out of hibernation and birds are migrating once again. The image above is of a Winter Wren from Magee Marsh this last weekend. This little bird is tough to spot and tougher to shoot because it spends a lot of time on the ground under logs and such and never stops moving. And it is quick. But it made for a fun (and, truth be told, frustrating) challenge. In the end, patience and persistance paid off.
