Bewick's Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

Description:

Small brown and gray wren with a white stripe above the eyes. They have white markings on their underside and have a long tail. They have a long bill that is curved downward.

Habitat:

These have been hanging around my backyard in an urban area. Natural habitat includes, scrubs, woodlands, urban areas, and open country.

Notes:

Fun Facts: 1. The drastic decline of this wren in the eastern U.S. is directly linked to the expansion of the House Wren. 2. Courting Bewick's are generally monogamous. 3. Male wren's develop a unique repertoire of songs (which is similar to but not the same as other males) between the age of 30-60 days. This unique repertoire is retained for the remainder of its life.

PERFECT shot with the beak in play or should i say song! I have Carolina Wrens and they are the sharpest little birds. Very curious, actually go into every nook and cranny to hunt insects. I put out meal worms which you can buy in bulk now cheaper and the love that!
