Conway, Arkansas — Happy Valley Road

About 100 yards up the hill from the Sperry’s driveway there is a cut-out in the dirt embankment along the road.  An 80 square foot area is bordered on three sides by a 10-foot wall of dirt and on the other side by the road.  The ground is partly covered with a tangle of fallen trees.

The Carolina Wrens were foraging in the brush and root-tangle.  I looked for them because I had heard them singing a few minutes earlier.
