The Marsh Wren is a lover of cattail marshes and other wet areas where it can easily hide.
It is found throughout the US and parts of Western Canada.
The Marsh Wren can be hard to spot among the thick bulrushes, especially considering is it quite small, only 5 in/13 cm long. It does, however, like to sing and chirp loudly. The male will sing to claim his territory. He builds many round nests suspended above the water with reed stalks. They serve as decoys so predators can't find the real one.
