Pacific Wren at MK Nature Center

On the last day of February we went for a walk around MK Nature Center. Near the beaver pond on the north side of the nature center we found a single Pacific Wren singing its guts out along the dam.

Pacific Wrens seem to show up here each winter, and while we’ve heard one here before, this was our first time laying eyes on one at this location. The bird was quite cooperative and let us enjoy its company for a few minutes before we moved on to look for other birds.

While we were thrilled to enjoy this little brown bird, Nora has yet to take a strong interest in the littler birds. She absolutely loves ducks though, and who can blame her! It’s hard to top the striking plumage of the Wood Duck.
