    Carolina Wren - Higbee Beach WMA, Cape May Point, New Jersey

    Note: This image was processed to remove background noise.
          Background noise tends the be more noticeable because the out of focus background is a very
          smooth gradation that causes random pixels of noise to stand out, whereas that same type of
          noise is much less conspicuous in detailed (in focus) areas, but any attempt to remove it from
          detailed areas will only degrade subject detail.

    This image may also be seen on the Cornell Lab of Ornithology web based "All About Birds" bird guide on
    the Carolina Wren page in the "Field Marks" section where it is used to illustrate the following field marks:
       • Stocky and large-headed with pointed bill
       • Warm brown above and buffy orange below
       • Tail barred with fine black markings
        (I would have also mentioned the bars on the primary and secondary wing feathers)
       • Prominent white eyebrow

    However, it's a poor "Bird Book" shot 'cause the big thing these guys are known for (i.e. the tail up at a sharp angle) is missing, which for me is what makes it unique! Gees Louise, I guess I'll never learn! LOL
