A few looked a little redder than others, but unlikely any were a different subspecies.

7
Marsh Wren (plesius Group)

12 was the exact count of MAWR, as they were surprisingly common in the reeds at the edge of all the ponds. Several were singing, and nearly all calling, with song perhaps described as harsher than that of eastern. Several were seen well. Recording and photo will be added.
