A House Wren just appeared on our deck April 9. The earliest dates I have in my book previously are two on April 15 in 2001 and 2012.

This morning Stuart and I were surprised to see a HOUSE WREN along the Des Moines River in Des Moines. It was silent, but hopped around in the bare branches of some shrubs, so we got clear looks. The long tail and lighter color ruled out Winter Wren.
