Stay out of the way of these compulsive birds, who take the practice of nest-building to a whole new level. The Marsh Wren continues to build her globular nests as long as she has young at home. As such, not one in twenty nests found actually contains eggs.
This bird is subject to the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and remains under the stewardship of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It can be borrowed for wildlife conservation, ecology, biology, scientific, or educational purposes. There may be limits on other, non-educational uses. Please contact us if you have any questions.
