Very nice catch, and a nice pose on the part of the subject.

Unfortunate genus name, though. Were it not for the genus name for the
common blackbird, Troglodytes would rank way up there at the top.

By the way, I recall in a Looney Tunes cartoon someone calling Daffy Duck
"Carbo". It wasn't until I was 22 that I caught the connection.

The House Wren (Troglodytes aedon) is a drab, very vocal bundle of 
energy.  Later in the spring after the brush leafs out they'll be much 
harder to photograph;

All comments welcome.
