Nesting Marsh Wren (5/6)

By Gregg Thompson


© Gregg Thompson View Large

Male Marsh Wrens will build several--as many fifteen--dome shaped shells in the reeds to woo females. He'll sing from high in the cattails to attract a female to select a bare frame in his territory. Once selected, she will collect material like cattail down, feathers, and grass to build the nest where she'll lay her eggs. Learn more
