For some reason this site did not place the location anywhere near accurately. It was photographed at a small wetland conservation area just outside of Rondeau Provincial Park, on the north side of Lake Erie, which is probably at least 200 km north east of where the pin shows.

Description
Marsh Wrens are common in many wetlands, but are typically heard rather than seen. On occasion, one will appear clinging to a couple of leaves of cattail, giving this spread-legged appearance. They don't stick around for long, however, as once they have investigated the intruder, they quickly go back into the thick of the cattails.
