Wren

Troglodytes troglodytes

Description:

The Eurasian Wren is one of the Europe's smallest birds (not The smallest though), and the only representative of Wren family on the continent. The bird is smaller than a sparrow, of brown appearance, round and sturdy, with short round wings and a short tail - tail is kept cocked most of the time, pointing upward.

Habitat:

Here observed in trees on banks of a river Valserine, before disappearing in leafless dense shrubs beneath. The Valserine is one of the cleanest streams in Jura mountain range, flowing through mixed lowland forest.

Notes:

I always considered these beauties relatively easy to spot, but a nightmare to photograph; and have discarded tons of pics of my encounters with them. This time I got really lucky - I got the time for 6 shots in rapid succession, and got four good ones out...
