While birding Lakeshore State Park in Milwaukee the highlight of the walk were 3 Marsh Wrens at the small detention ponds. There are a few areas of cattails there and the Marsh Wrens were in and out of each area every couple minutes getting insects. They were quick up and down in the cattails getting things to eat. I was impossible to keep track of where they were most of the time as they pretty much stayed out of sight. One juvenile was seen. On a few occasions they briefly showed themselves and I got a couple of shots. They are considered “Secretive birds”, I know why. It was a gloomy morning with cool temps, a good breeze, it was fall coat weather. Images were taken on September 27, 2019.
