Canyon Wren, Catherpes mexicanus


Canyon Wren, male singing, 12/13/10, Morro Rock, San Luis Obispo Co
The liquid cascade of sound that is the song of the Canyon Wren makes an especially powerful impression when heard over the rumble of the surf against the visual splendor of Morro Rock on the coast of central California. This male posed for me while giving his full song on a sunny December morning, an unforgettable treat.
