Honeymoon Island SP@ Honeymoon Island, I originally entered this as a Marsh Wren but after getting a second opinion I have reconsidered. Apparently, the buffy coloration around the eyes, lack of bold eyebrows, and the presence of bars on the wings mean it is a Sedge Wren. They can be distinguished from the typical House and Carolina Wrens by the dark brown / black patches on its back. The patches are covered in white speckles. I am not sure I would be able to tell them apart from a Marsh Wren.
