I really like wrens. They are tiny little birds and they act like they are the kings of the world. Bewick’s and Rock Wrens are the most common around here although I did see a Marsh Wren last January at Spring Canyon.
This Rock Wren was singing from the top of a utility pole at Spring Canyon. I don’t know what he saw, but he was on it.
We’ve finally started getting a little rain in the Texas Panhandle and the last few days have been beautiful; the high pressure dome that was camped out over us that gave us 100+° temps for much of June moved to the northwest of us and we’ve had a few days of low 80s and very little wind. With the rain the playas around here have recharged and so Sunday morning I drove the 20 miles to a playa near Panhandle, Texas in Carson County. The grass has finally turned green and wildflowers that usually bloom in early and mid-May have finally bloomed. There wasn’t a lot of birds at the playa ( it is summer, after all) but I did get a few nice shots. Hope the playas survive until the fall migration.
