    Sedge Wren

    Cistothorus platensis
    • ORDER: Passeriformes
    • FAMILY: Troglodytidae
    Basic Description

    A small, secretive wren that breeds in short grass and sedge marshes. Perhaps because of the highly transitory nature of its nesting habitats, the Sedge Wren moves around a great deal from year to year, not staying in one place for long.
