When a bunch of folks were enjoying the wren (from the road) on Saturday, one home owner (actually a relative of the home owner) came out to ask about the attraction. She got a look at the wren in the scope and seemed quite honored to have such an unusual guest in the grass. Thank you, Diane, and all Birders who will give this bird time (patience for it to reveal itself without using technology) and space.

For those of you attracted to the Rheaume Road Sedge Wren site, our thanks go to Diane Demers of Montreal who first discovered it.
Out of concern for the safety of the bird and possible nest, and consideration for nearby homes and residents, Diane worked with Craig Provost and me to ensure the posting of the location would be safe and birders would not leave the road in their quest of observing the bird. She withheld her finding until assured it was reasonable and without risk to bird and local residents.
Congratulations to Diane for both her discovery, and the care she gave to when and how to submit her discovery to eBird.
