House Wren

Troglodytes aedon

Habitat: Open woods, thickets, towns, gardens.

  • These energetic brown birds have a cheerful, lilting song as they dart from place to place.
  • The house wren is distinguished from other wrens by a light eye ring and lack of facial striping.
  • Wrens often perch with tails cocked upward, and often nest in bird boxes.
