Marsh Wren

Marsh Wren

As their name implies, these birds inhabit marshes of reeds, bulrushes and cattails. they feed on snails and insects. Marsh Wrens will destray the eggs of birds nesting nearby. Including other marsh Wrens and larger blackbirds. The male birds construct 10 to 20 nests but most go unused. These nests seem to be used as a way to impress females. Once she begins to lay eggs the polygamist male will seek out another mate.

This bird is depicted in low flight on a natural branch with a simply elegant un-breakable poly-carbon base. It is made from aluminum and has one piece wings. Like all of Daniel's sculptures, this is a hand crafted one of kind original. Purchase includes a letter of authenticity signed by the artist.
