tiny little Wren with the big voice and uplifted tail is common
throughout most of North America.
Their loud song and aggressive
defense of their territories give the impression of a much larger bird than
their small size. Their bubbling whistle may be heard in shrubs and bushes,
farmyard and gardens, orchards, and parks.
They like the undergrowth and
thickets, but others like marshy areas.
These nervous little bundles of energy are
quick to accept a nesting box for a home. The number of houses offered them
in recent years have contributed to their increasing numbers, and a house
with a small entrance will protect the wren and its family from the dangers
most nesting birds encounter.

Wren (house wren) singing.
