Winter Wrens like to hang low in the brush making it hard to see them and this one was no different. The difference in this case, however, was the brush. What is normally some type of foliage, was instead a pile of logs and large sticks. This left the Wren exposed for longer periods of time than is normal. The pile of wood was located below me as the trail rose up a bank with the beach below, so I was actually looking down on the Wren.
