the Spring Wren and the Spring Sparrow

From a midwestern perspective, Winter Wren would be much more aptly called Spring Wren.  Of course you could say that for most of our migrants.  I've never been able to get a decent pic of one until earlier this week in Warren Woods where a bird was way more intent on belting out a huge song from a tiny bird than evading my lens

 He sat long enough that I video'd him.

It then hopped up a branch and ruffled his feathers before disappearing.

White-throated Sparrow was the theme at Floral today.  There were hordes of them.

I was hoping to get one standing next to a trillium but couldn't quite pull it off.

A robin actually came the closest...
