Wren







Wren seen in Nuuksio National Park 26.4.2014.

The wren is Finland's second smallest bird,
but still manages to sing very loudly.
This little bird gave quite a performance!

To read more about wrens and to listen
to their song go here.

I'm linking to Wild Bird Wednesday.

  12. Hej Gunilla!
    Så bra bilder du fick av den lilla gärdsmygen!
    Jag har sett en sådan hemma i min lilla trädgård någon gång, trodde först det var en mus som sprang och gömde sig bland växterna.
