Sedge Wren

Seen in the marsh along the Saltmarsh Boardwalk Trail, roughly 10:05-10:10 AM. Follow the path to the right around the loop (counterclockwise). The bird was about 10 feet off to the right of the boardwalk in the twiggy brush, roughly fifty yards before you reach the big platform at the extreme east end of the loop. Only wren in the area...I couldn't find a Marsh Wren to save my life.
