Recently I've been seeing a few of these little birds flitting around my backyard. They are quite tiny with very short tail feathers. I looked them up, (of course), and found out that they're wrens. Apparently bluejays prey on them, and there's a fairly large bluejay population around here. I'm guessing the wrens are just visiting and will be moving on soon.
Coming up this weekend, November 4 and 5, is the Burlington Studio Tour. If you're in the area come by and say 'hi'. You can see all the artists and the map at www.artinaction.ca
