Bewick's Wren

Thryomanes bewickii

Description:

Bewick’s Wrens are medium-sized wrens with a slender body and a strikingly long tail often held upright. They have slender, long bills that are slightly downcurved. Bewick’s Wrens are subdued brown-and-gray wrens with a long, brow-like white stripe over the eye. The back and wings are plain brown; underparts gray-white; and the long tail is barred with black and tipped with white spots. Males and females look the same. Bewick’s Wrens cock their long tails up over their backs, often flicking their tails from side to side or fanning them as they skulk through tangles of branches and leaves searching for insects. During breeding season, males sing vigorously from prominent perches.

Habitat:

Wildlife habitat garden. New nest box.

Notes:

Not happy that I was walking past the nest box PN; http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/195...

They are great birds with attitude. They share the garden with Carolina Wrens. Currently I have both Wrens, Bluebirds, Carolina Chickadees, Northern Mockingbirds, Northern Cardinals, and of course House Sparrows nesting. I cannot walk anywhere in the garden without hearing fussing.
