Pocket marsh bird survey

On November 9, I completed my first survey of a pocket marsh. This little marsh was cut off back in the 1960’s and has filled in over the years. My assignment is to find out what birds are using the area now. My! I love these assignments. It is wetlands filled with various marsh grasses. Surprisingly there are quite a few birds using it. My favorite one is the Sedge Wren. It was so close to me I could almost touch it. What a subtle beauty. There were also some Wood Storks hanging out as well.
