Wren, (Troglodytes troglodytes)

I know some of you will recognise this as a ‘Winter Wren’, but here in the UK we usually simplify refer to them as a ‘Wren’ – we don’t have their extended family here.

These are tiny little birds and for their size have a powerful call/song.  They can be a real pain if you’re trying to stalk something, as they give alarm calls readily and insistently – and don’t stop until you leave their area, but leaving one area you invariably enter another bird’s area.

  1. Fantastic photo of a great little bird! In my part of the world (the West coast of North America, British Columbia to be more precise, they are called Pacific Wrens – this type of Wren is now considered to be three different species and I have seen all three!). Thanks for sharing…

    • AH! The species splitters have been at work then! Here in the UK, with, I guess, Europe they (the people who agree this sort of thing) have rushes of blood and decide that particular races of a bird are suddenly different species too. Still it gives Birders/Twitchers a wider scope for the their hobby (and mine too!) All the best, Stephen
