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.
