I was getting a little worried I was going to strike out on Marsh Wren for the season so I enlisted the help of a field assistant (he requested his identity be protected) to help execute the Marsh Wren Plan (pure Putznuts). Basically, my assistant waded out into the Portage Marsh and played a taped call of the Marsh Wren (iBird Pro) while I stood on my lair a half mile away hoping to catch the little bugger doing a territorial flight display in the scope. The plan was not as far fetched as it sounds but a dead phone battery and technical difficulties with an illiterate iPhone user (good help is hard to find) tried my patience to the point I called off "the hunt"only to find out as soon as I left the platform to retrieve my field assistant that the Marsh Wrens started doing their thing.
Not happy with the swamps performance this summer, not at all. El Sucko.
