Pacific (Winter) Wren

I noticed a small bird just off to the side of the trail among some fallen branches and leaves today at TRNWR. I figured it was probably a wren as it was rather small and hiding under cover. So I waited patiently with my camera ready and sure enough, it eventually showed itself. It turned out to be a Pacific Wren, recently split from what was a Winter Wren.
Wrens are difficult to photograph, as are many small birds, since they are typically always on the move and their size requires you to be pretty close to get a descent shot. While not a perfect shot, I am happy to have gotten this opportunity.
