Sedge Wren

The sedge wren is not a easy bird to see because of its small size, secretive behavior, and its brown coloration that helps conceal it within the vegetation. However, during the breeding season males will perch on tall plants and sing to proclaim their territory and to attract a mate. Therefore, it is best to learn their song and listen for it while birding on the prairie.
